Li Wei captures the everyday lives of people in Inner Mongolia. Both Han and Mongolian people have lived for millennia across this magnificent expanse. But the traditional nomadic lifestyle has been deeply influenced by the impact of modernisation. Some herders do not live in yurts anymore—instead, they have settled in towns. Some young people would rather dress more fashionably, and only old Mongolian people wear traditional Mongolian clothing.
Li Wei was born in 1976 in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, China. He graduated from the Communication University of China in 2001. His work was included in the China Pingyao International Photography Festival, the Angkor Photography Festival and the Singapore International Photography Festival. He's a freelance photographer and filmmaker. He finished his first documentary film HEXIGTEN in 2016.
