The New Yorker has a really great article about life along the Chinese-Russian border. Accompanying the article are photographs of the people and places here taken by photographer David Monteleone. The place, as you can imagine, is a little unusual due to the cultural clashes that occur when two different countries and heritages collide in one location.
But the photos are quite beautiful. Blue skies, farms, and humble businesses all started by a mixture of the two cultures. And of course, this sometimes means Russian-Chinese babies as well.
