Well salt harvesting, Zigong, China (自贡)
Well salt is warmly welcomed and well-loved all over the world - in fact, most of the well salt harvested here in Zigong are exported to Japan. The Japanese prefer well salt over sea salt, and they import well salt from Zigong (Sichuan Province) in China where well salt is abundant. The well salt industry in Zigong has been running for well over 1000 years, starting since the Song Dynasty! *Zigong is a city rich in heritage and it nicely reflects the Chinese culture, just like other cities and areas in Sichuan.

Years later, I have explored various different forms of photography, from event coverage, to fashion, to documentary, to photography using DIY lenses, and most recently, to film.
