HOUTOUWAN, China
Wider Image: Creeping Vines, Abandoned Village
Objects lie in an empty house in the abandoned fishing village of Houtouwan on the island of Shengshan July 25, 2015. Just a handful of people still live in a village on Shengshan Island east of Shanghai that was once home to more than 2,000 fishermen. Every day hundreds of tourists visit Houtouwan, making their way on narrow footpaths past tumbledown houses overtaken by vegetation. The remote village, on one of more than 400 islands in the Shengsi archipelago, was abandoned in the early 1990s as first wealthy residents then others moved away, aiming to leave problems with education and food delivery behind them.
