Although Life Lounge uses the words 'sparse' and 'serene' to describe Wang Yuanling's photography, I can't help but think the overriding descriptor is 'lonely.' Although this lonely theme is so pervasive and tangible, the series is still admittedly beautiful.

Showing a side of China that is rarely exposed, Wang Yuanling specifically captures her home city of Chongqing a year after the 2008 Sichuan earthquakes. Putting her photo-journalistic skills to the test, she succeeds in portraying the present-day scenery with gorgeous style.
