Sampans in the Lesser Lesser Gorges

2008 International Photography Exhibition
“Sampans in the Lesser Lesser Gorges”
Location: Yangtze River, China (Lesser Lesser Gorges)
Photographer: Kathleen Zwanziger
University Affliation: Staff
Category: Transportation
Award: Honorable Mention

In the artist's own words: “Sampans were used in China mainly as fshing vessels but could also be moving homes. Today they are also used to cruise the Lesser Lesser Gorges off the Yangtze River, as the larger ships cannot navigate the smaller rivers. This form of transportation provides a unique perspective for tourists from around the world.”
