Photographer's Note

The wholesale clothes market in Kunming is reputed to be the largest in the whole of S-W China, and indeed one of the largest in S-E Asia. It's a bold statement, but it is certainly believable; the market consists mainly of very large buildings and streets covering several huge blocks in the South of Kunming, near the main train station.

Many thousands of people work and shop there every day, many of whom go there by bike. This is how the shortage of parking space is dealt with; bikes are crammed together and stacked atop one another for the day, waiting for their owners to claim them in the evening. It's quite a sight.
