What you'll do

For this experience, I chose Yangmeizhu Xiejie in the center of Beijing. This is the favorite one selected by exploring more than 50 streets and alleys in the capital. It combines simplicity and modernity, blending with Western culture and the prosperous past. It has more history than Sanlitun, more pyrotechnic flavor than the Forbidden City, and less commercial flavor than Wudaoying and Nanluo~

Yangmeizhu Xiejie is a street in Beijing, located in the southwest outside Qianmen, about half a kilometer west from the west entrance of Dashilan Street, starting from Meishi Street in the east and Yanshou Street in the west. The street is not long, but it still retains the traditional flavors of Qingyun Pavilion, Zhonghua Printing and Publishing House, and plaques, and there are also several unique cafes.

Here, I’m walking and shooting with you. I’m tired to find a corner of my favorite Cafe, sit down, enjoy a cup of coffee, and chat about life~

Hello! I am Coco~

I graduated from Ohio State University in the United States. After returning to China, I worked in the clothing retail industry for two years. During the period, I took photos of clothing models. I would also find out half a day to ask friends to go out to take pictures every weekend to explore the shape and fun of the city.

I don't specialize in commercial photography, I just love to use lenses to discover and record beautiful things and stories. Therefore, I usually shoot a lot of humanities. I mostly shoot on film in the United States. I will have a small exhibition with my friends in the studio. I have always believed that the city is full of warmth and meaning because of the people here. Therefore, I am willing to listen to your thoughts and talk to you about why you came to this city, what you want to discover, your connection with this city, rather than simply taking pictures of you.

I hope that in just three hours, I can become friends with you and take pictures of Beijing that belongs to you.

I also love to travel and have explored Switzerland, Spain, Mexico, Thailand, Australia, Sri Lanka, Japan and other countries. If you are willing to share your unique experience, I believe this will be a very interesting life experience.

Where you'll be

Our experience started at the intersection of Yangmeizhu Xiejie, where we gather. Then look for the taste of culture at the China Book Bureau and take a group of indoor photos for you. Then stroll along the side street and take a group of street scenes. After passing Qingyun Pavilion, if you want, you can go up to the second floor and look at the ancient capital of Beijing. After walking the street, I will come to my favorite Cafe, have a cup of coffee, if you are lucky, you can watch the sunset and take a set of silhouettes for you~
