China: The Life of the Civilian
October 27 to December 10, 2014
With a population of seven million people, Kunming, China is a bit larger than Grand Rapids, Michigan. Life in the sprawling city in southwest China reminded GVSU student photographer, Megan Lendman of the vitality of Chicago or New York City.  Megan’s images of her study trip to Kunming capture both the exotic and the familiar; while exploring the often times remarkable similarities and differences of our two cultures.
