China, as seen by Elizabeth Dalziel

Spending a lot of time browsing through news images, I've come to admire the work of quite a few photojournalists, and thought it would be interesting to focus on their individual accomplishments by showing recent collections of their images here. Associated Press photographer Elizabeth Dalziel is based in Beijing, and has been documenting the people, places and events in China for the past several years, giving the world at large a glimpse into this region through her lens. Collected here are a recent handful of images of people from all walks of life, events large and small, and daily life in China, care of Elizabeth Dalziel. (38 photos total)
