President Jimmy Carter celebrated his 91st birthday last Thursday – the same day China celebrated the 66th anniversary of its founding. In 1979, Carter opened relations with China, helping the country become the economic powerhouse it is today.
Go beyond China’s metropolises into rural villages and you’ll see a different country – and a much simpler way of life. Photographer Zeng Yi captures the daily lives of ordinary people in “The People’s China: Village Life” exhibition now on display at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum.
Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for students and free for children 16 and under.
