Two photo exhibitions focused on China will be held at the Yunnan Provincial Museum in Kunming on April 20.
One exhibition themed "moments of intuition" will display 137 works created by French photographers Marc Riboud. Among them, 73 are about China during the period from 1955 to 2002. The others are about different places around the world in the same period.
Exhibition themed "kodachrome's China", will show another French photographer Bruno Barbey's 40 works about China during the period from 1973 to 1980.
