He says,

Since I work in a Natural Geographic Magazine as a photographer and editor I have a lot of opportunities to photograph places that people will never have access to. In China, people’s lives dramatically differ according to where they are geographically located. One famous Chinese saying is “Yi Fang Shui Tu Yang Yi Fang Ren” which means different places cultivate different people. China’s land is so vast, there are deserts, tropical climates, rivers, mountains, etc. The lives in these different places are unlike each other, the rich and the poor, the plateau and the water habitats, draught and rainforest. Therefore I pay attention to how these people inhabit their environments and how these environments mold these people’s lives.

Please enjoy some images of Ma Hongjie’s works!
