Editor's note:
It is estimated that 80 to 100 villages disappear each day across China amid the country's rapid urbanization. As these old villages disappear, so the traditional lifestyles and values that were nurtured within them.

One such village is Shangjin, a small hamlet in Zhejiang province. Seventeen years ago, the construction of a reservoir submerged part of the village, leaving the rest on an island cut off from the outside world. Those left behind have a hard life in their isolated homeland.
