Wuhan: A Photo-Essay

Thirty-six photographs taken in Wuhan in late October 2019.  Most of the images were taken in a single day, wandering across a small section of the city.

Wuhan has recently become the focus of a major public health crisis; I sincerely hope that this is resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible – and that this bustling and interesting city can start to get back to normal.
