Lu Guang has been documenting the ecological disasters in China
resulting from the rapid growth of the economy since 2005, focusing on
environmental pollution and the problem of schistosomiasis (bilharzia).
Over the last three decades, peoples' living standards have constantly
been on the rise in the country. At the same time, industrial pollution
has brought serious consequences for public health and for the
environment at large.
