Torrential rains, floods and inundations have hit China hard in recent years. According to the Chinese Meteorological Service, it was the heaviest rainfall ever.

Chongqing is the fourth largest Chinese city with a permanent population of over 30 million inhabitants, including a large rural population. Floods in the metropolis have caused mass evacuations and caused many deaths.
The extensive damage caused by heavy rains in China has been accentuated by climate changes which are changing the morphology of the places.

This chapter was shot along the streets of the metropolis and in a rural village, Yang Deng, inhabited mainly by families of farmers and breeders. By projecting images of flooding on daily life we try to show how these landscapes will be distorted at the end of the century due to climate change.
