Our Silk Road
Photographic exhibition | China Cultural Center in Athens

China believes that, when it comes to different civilisations, exchange will replace estrangement, mutual learning will replace clashes, and coexistence will replace a sense of superiority. Selected from over 8.000 works by 330 photographers who attended the 5th World Photography Conference, the photos in this exhibition capture the natural beauty and tell stories about the cultures, the traditions and the people of the Silk Road Initiative around eight topics: “Our Homes”, “How We Travel”, “Our Faces”, “How We Grow Up”, “Our Traditions”, “Our Friendship”, “Our Harvest”, “Our Festivals”.

Organisation: China Cultural Center in Athens
