Photographer's caption reads, "Louis Yen's grandfather started Asiantique, an antique business in the 1970's, traveling to China to offer new furniture to rural peasants in exchange for their old and often dirt covered pieces. In recent years, though, China's new prosperity has helped people realize the value in their 200-year-old junk furniture and there are fewer pieces available for export. Asiantique closed the summer of 200?"
