Maolin and Lin (Aberdeen, 2013)
Maolin Liao and Lin Sun. They came to Aberdeen from Langzhong, Sichuan in China to study. I photographed them in their flat, which they bought for the period of study. They are getting married soon and are planning to return to China after finishing their PhDs.
Foreign students are important to the Scottish economy: in Aberdeen alone the amount of money spent by international students every year is around £67 million.
