Man tours China, records splendid scenery with over 80,000 photos

A Chinese man toured 20 Chinese provinces, 4 autonomous regions, 2 municipalities and 1 special administrative region, in one year, and shot a total of 88,707 photos that cover 118 spots in all of China’s 55 world heritage sites.

Recently, he has hosted a personal photo exhibition in Beijing, showcasing the beautiful landscape of China through his works.

The man named Wang Jianbo started shooting in July 2018, explaining that his photos were a special gift for his homeland.

According to him, he visited 41 countries and regions in 2016 and took a total of over 50,000 photos. “The farther I went, the more I found that many foreigners indeed have insufficient understandings of China. That’s why I started planning to take photos of the country,” Wang said.

World heritage sites became a focal point for him. “The world heritage sites have been designated by the United Nations and recognized by people worldwide. They belong to not only China, but also the world and the entire human race,” he explained, adding that he hopes to showcase these photos to overseas exhibitions and introduce to other foreigners the nature as well as culture of China that can be experienced through these heritage sites.

After the Beijing exhibition, Wang will go to Malaysia, Switzerland as well as Myanmar to display his works.
