Tim Fenby Documented The Last Communist Town in China

Tim Fenby is a freelance photographer and filmmaker based in Melbourne, Australia. Tim graduated from the Swinburne University of Melbourne, the department of Media Arts. For his series “Nanjiecun”, Fenby captured amazing photos of Nanjie’s streets, which is the last holdout of communism in capitalist China. In the 1980s, when the rest of China was introducing market reforms, Nanjie went the opposite direction, instead embracing the ideas of collective ownership that Mao espoused.

I heard about Nanjing, the communist town in China, on the radio. About how it is still functioning totally out of date. I got interested but couldn’t find good images online. Curiosity drives.
