Photographer's work changes life of 'cliff village'

Last year, a little-known "cliff village" in Liangshan Yi autonomous prefecture of Southwest China's Sichuan province grabbed national attention. Photos of children climbing a rattan ladder on an 800-meter cliff to reach their school left the country in shock. After the village hit the headlines, the rattan ladder was replaced with a steel ladder with handrails November costing one million yuan ($148,000). The person who should be credited for making the life of children easier is Chen Jie, a photographer of Being News. On June 16, Chen came back to the village to interview the villagers. That was his sixth trip to the village and 16th time climbing the ladder to cliff. [Photo/VCG]
