The Land of Promises tells the intimate and personal stories of those living by the regulations of China’s one-child policy. The consequences were enormous, in particular for hundreds of thousands Chinese girls who have been separated from their families and registered for adoption. In this work photographer Youqine Lefèvre (BE) portrays the journey of her adoption through the story of six Belgian families and relates it to a broader context of international and transracial adoptions and other stories told by those she met during her travels. The changes in their lives resonate upon this day and will continue to do so.
