Mo Xiaoshu takes pictures of Jiabang terraced fields in Congjiang County, southwest China's Guizhou Province, May 4, 2021. Persistent wet weather shrouds the terraces with a blanket of cloud and mist on most mornings. The dreamy landscape is what you can fancy and find in pictures snapped by Mo Xiaoshu. Mo, a 39-year-old civil servant, has taken more than 100,000 photos recording Jiabang terraced fields in Congjiang County in the past 13 years. His work went viral online and attracted bevies of shutterbugs to visit the rice terraces. Jiabang has something special -- fish and ducks are also raised in the fields to form a unique agricultural system that has been listed in the Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The images Mo yielded also illustrate the profound changes in the terraces and lives of people there. Access to paved roads has been realized in recent years, reinforcing connections between locals and people from the outside, and boosting local tourism revenue. "Great changes have taken place in the region. I want to document Jiabang imperishably through my lens," Mo said. (Xinhua/Yang Wenbin)
