Chengdu's He Hua Chi Market is the biggest in western China. Photographer Li Fan explores the lives and businesses inside.

In the narrow alleyways of Chengdu's He Hua Chi Market, a teeming mass of laborers and small business workers struggle to earn a living. The endless array of clothing, home furnishings, construction materials and souvenirs leaves the beginning and end of the market impossible to distinguish.

Though the market is the largest in western China and the seventh largest wholesale market nationally, many workers live in near poverty conditions. Photographer Li Fan sought to capture the everyday life of the people who live and work in He Hua Chi.
