Fall in Love with China, a book that tells China's stories from the perspective of French photographer Yann Layma, was recently published in Chinese and English by Zhejiang University Press at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany.

The book was adapted from a documentary film with the same name, which took the personal experiences of Yann Layma as he photographed China's social changes over the past three decades.  

The documentary is now available in German, French and English. The German version aired on Austrian television network OKTO at the recommendation of UNESCO and the French version aired on French network IDF1. 

Zhejiang University Press signed a copyright export agreement with eight overseas publishers at the launch ceremony to translate the book into other languages such as German, Italian and Russian.

The book sheds a light on the life of ordinary Chinese people. Let's look at some of the photos.
