Wang Jian Qiu, the last shipbuilder in Macau SAR, China at his shipyard, July 24, 2008. Once home to perhaps a dozen shipyards, demand for the traditional trade in Coloane has dwindled thanks to increasing competition from Mainland China. Qiu recently completed construction of a fishing vessel, which may turn out to be the last ship ever made in Macau. Photography by Forbes Conrad
