Heritage in focus

From landmark sites to nature and human creativity, such as the Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven, to time-honored arts and crafts, including local operas and techniques to restore artifacts, a photo exhibition at the China Millennium Monument zooms in on the variety of examples of cultural traditions in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province. It also puts into focus people's efforts to preserve these long-standing items and practices throughout generations. More than 300 snapshots, by professional and amateur photographers from across the country, draw people's attention to not only the famous cultural relics but also those kept at lesser-known museums and memorial halls, which deserve equal protection. The photos also update the audience with the latest developments in technologies applied in archaeology and conservation, including remote sensing, aerial photography and underwater archaeology. The exhibition, on through to Sunday, was opened at this year's Cultural and Natural Heritage Day, on June 10, and is part of the ongoing event Photo Beijing.
