In 2004, Henan Charity General Federation and Shaolin Temple launched a campaign to provide financial support to 1,036 orphans under 16 years old until they come of age.
As a documentation of and social investigation into this gesture of love and kindness, Archives on Orphans follows 12 individuals in their uncommon and diverse walks of life across a decade. Visiting the orphans once every five years between 2004 to 2014, the collection of images charts the destiny of each child into young adulthood.
This guided tour conducted personally by the photographer offers rare insights into the whys and the hows, as well as the trials and tribulations across the years of tracing the orphans.
