Photographer's Note

Kongdang is a village in the Drung Gorge, which is expanding due to its location at the end of the road from Gongshan, which was built in 1999. Prior to this there were no roads into the Drung Gorge, and the only way in or out was by walking over the Gaoligong Mountains, in the extreme N-W of Yunnan. The new face of Kongdang - let's be frank - is a hideous import of Chinese architecture, pink police station and hotel included. It seriously clashes with the pristine surroundings, and it's rapidly becoming an environmental disaster in this remote area.

What I find amusing here is the contrast between a satellite dish, which is a very modern and sophisticated piece of equipment, and the flimsy shack next to it. A sign of things to come?
