National Geographic Your Shot

“Actors prepare for an evening opera performance in Licheng County, China. I spent the whole day with these actors from makeup to [stage],” writes photographer Huaifeng Li. “I’m a freelance photographer, and the series ‘Cave Life’ is a long-term project of mine. In China's Loess Plateau, local residents dig holes in the loess layer [to create cave living spaces, known as yaodongs] and use the heat preservation properties to survive cold winters.”

Nobody thinks about the problems of the actors that they have to overcome to be on the stage.
