When citizens are united, adaptable, and resilient, any bad situation can be turned for the better. In the Municipality of Chongqing, people, like our photographer, Zhang Qianyu, are gradually returning to their past habits. The sky after the storm is colorful, companies lick their economic wounds, and people glance at familiar monuments and buildings with a feeling of relief. Like an animal that wakes up from hibernation, the city needs a few weeks to gain back its original strenght. But it’s only a matter of time.
Hope is on the streets again, and it shines in the eyes of the inhabitants of Chongqing.
