Latvian photojournalist's exhibition on Tibet opens in Riga

A photo exhibition featuring pictures taken by Latvian photojournalist Janis Laizans in Tibet has been unveiled here Friday.

The exhibition, named "Seven Days in Tibet", has a collection of 30 pictures shot by Laizans during his trip to China's Tibet Autonomous Region in the summer.

A group of Latvian journalists, who had the opportunity to visit Tibet in June, traveled to Tibet's main Buddhist shrines in the capital city Lhasa, as well as Tibet's rural regions.

The photographs displayed at the exhibition show Tibet's impressive landscapes, local residents of the mountainous region, school children and pilgrims.

The photo exhibition will last until Oct. 16.
