Married young: Meet China's teen brides

Photographer Muyi Xiao profiled a number of young Chinese newlyweds in a 2014 trip to Yunnan. The youngest was just 13. Teenage brides and grooms aren't uncommon in poor and rural parts of China -- as economic pressures, shifting social attitudes and changing population dynamics revive a practice that China's Communist leaders had hoped to stamp out. The tender and fascinating series of images helped earn Xiao a prestigious photography fellowship with the Magnum Foundation. These images first appeared on Chinese news portal Tencent.
