Photographer Sim Chi Yin spent more than three years documenting a Chinese gold miner who is suffering from the deadly lung disease silicosis. Despite the odds, his loving relationship with his wife has kept him alive much longer than anyone expected. VEX edited this Pitch/Teaser movie together with Sim Chiyin, that was later incorporated in the more extensive National geographic publication.
