Images taken in August of 2017 at Xuanwu Lake Park, a former imperial lake garden composed of five naturally occurring islands connected by bridges. During imperial times, the lake was also known as “Military Rehearsal Lake”, as many military demonstrations and battles were fought there over the years.

The park opened to the public in 1911 and received its current name in 1935, just two years prior to the horrific Nanking Massacre – a highly contested incident that is still a sore spot between China and Japan to this day.

Part of the publication series Intimate Narratives.
