A child wearing a mask against pollution in the streets of Lanzhou, near a chimney of a factory using coal. The pollution is so high that children's respiratory deseases have dramatically increased those last years.
Lanzhou, in the Gansu province is one of the most polluted city of China and in the world's top ten for atmospheric pollution due to human activity. The town is situated between two hills along the Yellow River and the polluted clouds remain blocked over the town. The sky is most of the time hidden by the pollution.
