With 1.3 billion people, many of the cities in China show astonishing and amazing images, revealing the true extent of the growing population, including gridlocked roads packed with static cars queued for miles on end.

These photos also show a beach with people packed so closely that not a grain of sand is visible as far as they eye can see as citizens dash to the water with rubber rings around them. Thousands of children, who sit the same exams all over the country at the same time, are seen densely packed together on uniform desks in a vast hall.

Let’s look at glimpses of China growing population hazards through the eyes of lens men:
