Railway worker turned photographer Wang Fuchun captures moments of people traveling on Chinese trains. The vivid images have won him many awards and renown on Chinese social media.
From steam locomotives to bullet trains, the last 30 plus years of changes for China’ s railways have all been recorded in Wang’s photos—but most interesting are the people.
“Trains are loaded with people’s hopes and regrets,” said 68-year-old Wang in Amusing Planet.
Born in 1943, he began photographing on the trains in the 70s, and by 1984 he’d become a professional photographer based in Beijing. Wang has since won the 17th National Film Festival gold medal in China, 3rd place in the Chinese Photographic Art Award, and was awarded as Chinese Photographers outstanding member.
He says when he gets on a train he gets a comfortable feeling, like being at home.
