The exhibition Between Mountains, Hills and Lakes kicked off on Friday in the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in Beijing.
The exhibition starts from the curator He Yining's own travel experience and research in Switzerland in the past two years. She selected nine projects from seven photographers from Switzerland and two Chinese photographers who have stayed in Switzerland in recent years.
The exhibition also showcases 29 photography books published in the last five years under the support of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
Swiss Ambassador Bernardino Regazzoni said at the opening ceremony that the exhibition comes at the right time, when travel outside China has literally become impossible.
"Fortunately, art, and in this case photography, provides an alternative that makes it possible to cross borders safely!" he said.
The exhibition coincides with the 70th anniversary of Sino-Swiss bilateral relations. After being held in Shenzhen, Guangdong province and Shanghai, it has traveled to the capital and will last till the end of January.
