Faces in China


Today Cruzine presents a photo gallery dedicated to China. This country, which was hidden from the Western world behind the Great Wall for centuries to protect its traditions and preserve its lifestyle and culture, amazes the whole world today with its rapid growth in terms of both quantity and quality. For many centuries, China was a secret for European and North American people; though it was China that gave papermaking, compass, gunpowder and printing to the Mankind. Today, the curtain is parted (at least, partially), and people from the entire world can learn all the variety of the Chinese microcosm with its specific coloring, shapes, and phenomena.

China is a country of contrast; and the way foreigners perceive China also varies greatly. On one hand, China is the country where the high technology industry flourishes with hundreds of world’s top companies’ production facilities located there. On the other hand, the label “Made in China” is often treated as the synonym of poor quality. Such contrast is also vividly illustrated on the images, presented below. The unique landscapes and sceneries of divine Nature interweave with the pictures of overcrowded and industrialized cities. Ancient wisdom and unique culture, cherished by many generations, is now under the powerful influence of globalization. Today, the face of China may transform, trying to adapt to the global challenges, but, hopefully, modern China will succeed in preserving and multiplying the great legacy, once generated by one of the world’s richest cultures.

Westerners like to select ugly pictures of China.
These are meant to portray China in a negative light.
And notice those pics above, most of them are ugly old folks,
these are intended to give viewers the feelings that China is old, ugly & backward country.
Please don't shoot, I'm just a babe.
