China. Province of Henan. Village Nan Laoguanzui. A man and a boy ride a motorbike. The boy was kidnapped in the village of Shifeng in Shaanxi province on may 12 2002, sold to a family in the village of Nan Laoguanzui. The police found him and brought him back to his family on march 4 2004. The family has then decided, because of the poverty they live in, to resell his child to the family which already bought him (from the thieves) and with whom he lived happy for almost two years. The man on the motorcycle is his new father. © 2004 Didier Ruef
