Beijing, China. 2007
Exactly one year before the beginning of the 2008 Olympic Games, the German newspaper Die Zeit sent a team of reporters to Beijing to report on the preparations for the most important event in modern Chinese history.
I accompanied Die Zeit’s reporters as they visited the key Olympic venues, met with prominent businessman and artists and travelled the city in an attempt to discover the potential impacts on Beijing’s residents.
The 2008 Olympic Games proved to be a phenomenal success and announced to the world that China had arrived in the 21st Century as a new world power.
