Chinese photographer Zhu Yinghao and Swissphotographer Petri de Pità were asked to portray the life of 60-year-oldChinese and Swiss citizens under the theme “Happiness”.
Thephotographers, Zhu and de Pità spent three weeks around Bern-Interlaken andBeijing respectively, following the models they had chosen through networks ornewspaper announcements and classified ads.
