Celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Hong Kong’s Return to China

July 2-3, 2012 -- two days only

The Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Los Angeles and the Xinhua News Agency, Los Angeles Bureau, will be presenting the Celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Hong Kong’s Return to China photo exhibition, on the first Monday and Tuesday of July in the Barth Community Room of Crowell Public Library.

The exhibit consists of forty selected photos, including some invaluable, seldom-shown historical photos. The show will educate visitors in the history, culture and the daily lives of Hong Kong residents.

Xinhua Gallery is a successful division of the Xinhua News Agency. Since it began to stage exhibitions in May 2010, hundreds of exhibits have been held in over 100 countries around the world. The China Photo Archive, which belongs to Xinhua News Agency, contains over six million historical photos going back to the 1850s. The Xinhua multimedia database holds more than 10 million current photos, and every day Xinhua is releasing over 2,000 photos taken by its photographers all over the world. The combination of the abundant resources and Xinhua’s strength in editing and display has made Xinhua Gallery photo show attractive to visitors.
