“I was looking for people pulling ice out of the frozen Songhua River, and I walked for about five miles alone on the river before I spotted this team working the ice,” says Your Shot contributor Wesley Thomas Wong, who has been working on a project about ice workers in Harbin, China, for four years.
“I made several trips to various ice festival sites under construction in and around Harbin. I wanted to find out where these guys were getting these huge blocks of ice for construction material, and I learned that all of it came from one place—the river.”
