The abandoned fishing village lost to nature

The abandoned fishing village lost to nature

The abandoned fishing village in Shengsi, an archipelago of almost 400 islands at the mouth of China’s Yangtze river, holds a secret shrouded in time. These photos by Jane Qing, a creative photographer based in Shanghai, depict the lost village being taken over by the nature it once dominated.

Once a thriving settlement merely half a century ago, Houtou Wan Village was gradually deserted when the small bay could no longer meet the needs of the increasing number of those wanting to lead the life of a fisherman.

Over the past few decades, the nature that once surrounded the land has begun to encroach upon it, and slowly but surely the town has become uninhabited, save for a few lowly tourists and a handful of elderly residents who refuse to abandon their place of birth.
