Check out this photo compilation titled “China: Daily Life” by The Boston Globe.
Each day, wire service photographers from around the world file photos to their member papers that fall under the category of “daily life.” On February 8, 2011, I posted a Big Picture that featured some photography from Pakistan under that heading. The images document what we call in newspaper terminology, “slice of life” photography. They are ordinary, random moments captured around a city or in the countryside and they give us just a glimpse of something in that particular place that we might not ordinarily be able to experience. The images in this post are by photographers from the Associated Press based in China. Again, they contain very little caption information and are intended to provide a small window into another culture perhaps far from our own yet reflecting elements of universality. (Note: These images were collected over the first three months of 2011.) – Paula Nelson. (34 photos total)
