CHINA

Posted on by

China is a land of contradictions, vast wealth and modern technology contrast with the extreme poverty and 19th century living conditions of many.

I was fortunate to spend a year in China (July 2004 – August 2005) working for China Radio International http://english.cri.cn/ as an English language sub-editor and broadcaster.

 

And here are some of the images of China I captured during that memorable year.
