Two elderly brothers with their flowing white beards have caught the attention of foreign photographers and become stars in their photos of Lijiang River in Guilin city, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
Huang Yuechuang, 77-year-old, and Huang Quande, 87-year-old, used to be fishermen near the Lijiang River. Nowadays, due to their white beards - a traditional Chinese style, they have now become models appearing in many foreign photographers' photos of a must-see scenic spot Lijiang River in Guangxi.
The visual spectacle showcased in these photos has turned the elderly men online celebrities as both professional and amateur foreign photographers come to China to photograph them.
