From the Inside Looking Out

Each March, Beijing hosts the “Two Sessions,” massive meetings of the National People’s Congress and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. Members of the two bodies of the nation’s legislature meet for a week in the Great Hall of the People and in breakout sessions in luxury hotels around the capital, usually in roped-off areas and behind closed doors. Barred from access to the meetings while in session, photographer Zhao Di of China Youth Daily trained his camera’s lens out the windows of empty meeting rooms and hotel spaces before the government officials arrived.

Meanwhile, south of Shanghai, Wu Yue at Sixth Tone combined video and photos to show the very serious business that is child modeling in China. This installment of Depth of Field, covering photographs taken in March, also includes impressive image collections depicting gender reassignment surgery, rural opera, and an unusual boxer.
