Human life has long since departed this place, as have all signs of industry. In this eerily quiet abandoned village, nothing moves – unless the wind blows it. As a result, greenery has spread across rooftops and pathways, even reclaiming empty houses once filled by families. The vegetation is so thick that open windows are often the only indications that buildings stand underneath at all.
Some mesmerizing images have been captured of this Chinese former fishing village. The photographer who took the snaps was Jane Qing, with her wonderful work being shared online in June 2015. Consequently, it was suggested that her pictures offered a snapshot of how urban centers might look if humans disappeared.
