500 Days until the Beijing Olympics

April 24, 2007 | By Megan McKay | Olympics, Sport


To generate excitement for the upcoming Beijing Olympics, Getty Images and the WangFuJing bookstore (one of the most influential book stores in China) organized an Olympic photo exhibit featuring 20 Getty Images classic Olympic moments.

The exhibit is on WangFuJiang Street, which is known as the “golden street,” and located at the heart of Beijing. It’s the main commercial and cultural center, visited by 400, 000 to 500,000 people every day.


Several locals and tourists have stopped and posed in front of those photos; they have read through captions, and learned about what Getty Images is.

This is an exciting first step as the official photographer of the Beijing Olympics!
