Our Photo of the Day series this week shares works from photographer Pavel Dvorak. Of this shot, he says:

Jianzi is one of the most traditional games in China. It’s played all over the country. Sometimes people are standing in a circle and kicking the jianzi to each other. Sometimes they play it like volleyball, over a big net. In either case, these are really difficult moves. People of all ages and from all cities however, are very skilled in kicking the jianzi. This picture is from Beijing, where people play jianzi every day on a small square between the Drum and Bell towers.

Pavel is a Slovak content creator based in Shanghai. He moved to China in 2009 after receiving a double major in Chinese culture-language in Czech Republic. He organizes cross-cultural business events and recently began taking his business clients beyond the big cities and out to off-the-beaten-path adventures. Pavel’s works have been published in various media internationally, and awarded at the International Movie Festival Karlovy Vary. You can check out Pavel’s website here.
