Subject

The Great Famine

Description

This documentary photograph depicts desperate peasants in Hubei province eating leaves to survive during the Great Famine. These peasants belonged to some form of commune. This photograph clearly doesn't emanate from official sources as the extent of the famine was kept under wraps. Compare this scene to a Chinese propaganda poster of the same era.
