In the photographer's words: "This photograph was taken in the Pearl River Delta, of Mainland China, as part of the OSU student group participating in a 6 week, International Design Opportunity Workshop, called Supporting Aging with Design, sponsored by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design. While conducting ethnographic research, we visited a nursing home in Beijio. I was struck by the tiny details of care and respect displayed for the elderly in this population."
