Wedding Interrupted : China Begins to Crumble

The New York Times just delivered some mind blowing photos that photographer Wang Qiang had taken during the 7.9 disaster that took place on May 12, 2008, and left tens of thousands dead in Sichuan. Apparently a very popular backdrop for wedding pictures, 5 couples gathered around the French missionary church near the town of Bailu to be photographed in their most memorable moment.

The century-old church was destroyed in the quake, it all happened in about 10 seconds. The couples managed to escape without injury.
