The 21st Pingyao International Photography Festival opened in the Ancient City of Pingyao, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in North China's Shanxi province, on Sept 19. 

With the theme "Wonderful World & Beautiful China", this year's festival consists of photography exhibitions, trading activities, and evaluations, with nearly 10,000 photographs on display.  

Eight famous photographers from a variety of countries and regions are invited to interpret why they choose photography from their own creative practices at the academic exhibition of the festival. 

Due to epidemic prevention and control requirements, the festival organizing committee will strictly control the daily numbers of visitors and extend the opening time of most exhibitions from one week to one month.
