Theme

The seven African-themed photographs selected by StarTimes are displayed at the exhibition, showing the charm of Africa.

The African-themed photography works selected by StarTimes were taken by Li Chao, the group’s full-time photographer. He took the shots during his travels in various African countries. The shutter framed the innocent smiling faces in the school of Gatumba village in Burundi and the concentration of children watching Chinese movies in Congo (Brazzaville).

The gathering of the Kibera community in Kenya was also recorded from the view on plane; the afterglow of the dusk of the Indian Ocean in Tanzania was touched with the lens; the winding Victoria Falls at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe was presented with the picture; the tranquility before sunset in the capital of Madagascar was sealed with the photo, among others. 

The world’s top photographic talents, high-end photographic products and advanced photographic technologies have converged in Lishui to discuss the development trend of photography, comprehensively demonstrate the innovation of the industry and share the achievements of technological development in a diversified manner.
