Between Shanghai & Ürümqi

Each and every day an innumerable amount of acts, things and events occur around the world. Some we learn of. Some will only be known to a few people and some will dissipate.

Linus Shentu, LA-based photographer and homie of the shop, brings to our attention a slice of life on a moving train in rural China through a series of photos titled Salon Des Refusés. The actions and behaviors of weary travelers being towed from A to B are captured in black and white allowing us to experience a moment in, what the photographer himself calls, “Chinese hell”.
