Photographer Ma Hongjie has spent the past 11 years documenting different families with all of their possessions in various parts of China.
The album, titled The Family Belongings of Chinese People, includes around 90,000 words of text in both Chinese and English, Ma said in his blog, and will be sold on the market later this month.
Pictured above is a home in the ancient village of Huangsiqiao, Phoenix County, Hunan Province. Check out more of the images in the album below.
