Cao Suizhou, a Chinese fisherman on the Danjiangkou reservoir, is used to moving. He's been forcibly relocated three times for China's country’s colossal water projects and each time he's rebuilt his life from scratch. In 2009 Cao’s village was moved to make way for China's South-to-North Water Transfer Project, his small business was torn down along with his home. While Cao's wife relocated to the new village, Cao moved onto his boat to sustain the family’s livelihood. Image by Sharon Lovell. China, 2015.
