Chinese-American photographer Wan Xiaoyan opened an exhibition titled Profiles of Chinese-Americans at the Overseas Chinese History Museum of China in Beijing on October 9. The show features over 200 photographs documenting the lives of Chinese-Americans in the U.S. from the '90s to today.

Co-sponsored by the Overseas Chinese History Museum of China, the Overseas Chinese Charity Foundation of Jiangsu, and the Nantong Returned Overseas Chinese Federation, the exhibition aims to help her audience learn more about America and the life of Chinese-Americans.

Over the past three decades, Wan has travelled across the U.S. with her camera to capture the essence of social life and natural sceneries. She focuses her work on emotional expressions from common people with an emphasis on broad scope and unique perspective.

The exhibit runs until October 23.
