Taken by Indonesian citizens, the photos display the daily life of local people and those living in Shanghai. Since this year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Indonesia, the exhibition entitled “Friendship thru Lenses” is a way to celebrate the bond between the two countries.
