357762ce-82cc-4af3-b4ab-72c49671629d-2060x1236Zhang Jinling is picking cardboard boxes from a trash can on the side of the road in a downtown area of Shanghai. She empties the boxes, folds them and puts them on a trailer hitched to a bicycle. She also buys cardboard from residents in the houses on the same street, purchasing it for 2.5 mao (less than 3p) for a pile. When her trailer is full, she takes the load to a recycling market on the outskirts of the city where she sells each pile for a 1p profit. Markets like these sort waste into different materials and sell it to bigger markets where it ends up at big industrial recycling plants for individual materials.

Daniel Traub’s ‘Little Road North’小北路 #SinoAfrica

Xiaobeilu’ is a photographic and film project that explores ‘the social life and economies of a pedestrian bridge in Guangzhou that functions as a symbolic gateway into China from Africa and the Global South’. Daniel Traub, a photographer and ‘curator’ of this project, is a half-Chinese American who lived in China for several years. In 2009, Traub met two souvenir photographers that were working on a bridge in the area of Xiaobei, in downtown Guangzhou – the area that has come to be know as the ‘Chocolate City’ or, more recently, ‘Little Africa’. The two photographers -internal (transprovincial) migrants themselves- were offering A4-size prints to foreigners passing by, and had the most success with Africans who would buy the photographs as souvenirs of their time in China.
