Photographer's Note

Xinmeng village in Tonghai, is home to a community of some five thousand ethnic Mongolians, descendants of Kublai Khan soldiers who did not return to their homeland when they were defeated during the Ming Dynasty. They settled here and adapted well to the new environment. They work mostly as farmers, blacksmiths, fishermen and small traders.
