After their successful cooperation last year, China Daily and Rossiyskaya Gazeta (Russian Gazette) jointly launched another photo album on Tuesday, in Moscow. The second project, One Hundred Photographers Focus on China, has turned its focus on modern life in China, whereas the first project, One Hundred Photographers Focus on Russia, offered colorful glimpses into modern life in Russia.
As the latest addition to China Daily's Focus series, the photo book again highlights the talent and creativity of Chinese and Russian photographers. It contains 210 photos by more than 130 photographers, including the work of Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev.
Besides comprehensively reflecting on the country's long history, ancient civilizations, diverse landscapes, developing economy and the perseverance and creativity of its people, the book also highlights the friendships that exist between China and Russia.
Zhu Ling, publisher of China Daily, wrote in the album's preface: "Thanks for photographers from both China and Russia, especially Prime Minister Medvedev, you turn your eyes on profound and sophisticated Chinese culture, on the rapid development of China ... In short, you zoom in on the positive energy of this old and civilized country."
