Introduction to author:
Yann Layma, born in 1962, bretons, France. He began to travel around the world at the age of 14, took a fancy to photography at the age of 16, and became a professional photographer at the age of 18. In 1984, he was allowed to enter and leave the Elysee Palace in Paris freely, and photographed the political life of the then President Mitterrand for one year, becoming the only photographer in France who won this honor. In 1985, he first came to Chinese mainland. How many times he has been to China since then, he can't count himself. He has witnessed the torrent of China's reform and opening up since the 1980s, and the tremendous changes in people's lives and spirits. Over the past 30 years, Yan Lei has taken more than 60 photo reports about China and published 4 photo albums about China. His large-scale photo collection "China" was released in six countries around the world in 2004, with a print run of several hundred thousand copies, which made him the most influential photographer on Chinese subjects in the West. In 2005, he was awarded the French Knight Medal for his outstanding contribution to Sino-French cultural exchanges. In March 2015, Yan Lei's photo album Yesterday's China was published in China. The book is based on China, a large-scale photo collection published in 2004, and some unpublished photos are selected and supplemented, which attracts readers' attention.
