Longtime lensman incorporates beauty of nostalgia and humanity in his pictures

Over the past 37 years, Jia Yong, a Beijing resident dedicated to taking photos in hutong-the capital's traditional alleys-has been capturing and composing everyday life into pieces of art.

"People are more expressive than stationary objects in my photos," Jia said.

"People can represent times because in different eras, even only 10 years apart, people who live in the same alley would have a totally different living situation and attitude towards life."
