For the last few centuries the west has dominated economics, politics and culture. But now there is a shift towards the east, in particular China, a country of 1.4 billion people of which we know little about. It is the young Chinese who will inherit this new found global influence, but who are they and what do they think about life. I traveled on a 12500 km journey through China to find an answer to this question. I looked for young Chinese aged from 16 - 30 years, gave them a piece of paper and simply told them they could write what ever they wanted to on the piece of paper, I then photographed them holding the paper. The results were fascinating.
