"I want to show the happy lives of Chinese people, because in the last 30 years, China has (experienced) so much change," said Steve Zhao, founder of China Story, a photographic project which aims at telling the rich and fascinating stories of China through the faces of its most ordinary people and their lives.

Zhao joined China Daily reporter Song Wei in an interview Monday afternoon, sharing his experiences doing the project and his unique story in becoming a photographer with a physics major in college.
