The Atlantic Has Some Amazing Images Of Contemporary China That You Should Look At
The Atlantic is running an ongoing series called “Scenes From 21st-Century China,” in which it seeks to show the PRC is a “vast, dynamic nation that continues to grow and evolve.” (We last posted about this in June.) Its latest installment, published Monday, features 42 stunning hi-res images that go a long way toward accomplishing that mission. We’ve sampled a dozen of them here, but you should really go give them all a look. The symbolism in many of the pictures is poignant and not half as obvious as the Icarus allegory above.
