Living Yangtze by Eric Valli for Swarovski Waterschool is a multi-media project narrating the stories of seven communities living along the great Yangtze River in China as documented by Eric Valli, a distinguished film director, photographer and author. Eric Valli was commissioned by Swarovski to spend six months documenting the lives of communities around the locations of the Yangtze River.

The extensive body of work showcased at Living Yangtze by Eric Valli for Swarovski Waterschool portrays the magnificent landscapes and dignified faces of the people Eric met on his way. Home to 480 million people, the Yangtze River is the third largest river in the world and supports one-third of the Chinese population.

Featuring 96 photographs and seven short documentary films, the exhibition aims to use film as a positive medium to generate empathy and awareness about the importance of clean, sustainable water sources.
