What does the world look like through the eyes of a child?

What do these young souls want to capture when they hold a camera?

A yak standing near an emerald green lake? An old-fashioned barbershop, where hairdressers are busy serving their clients?

The answers were all uncovered Sunday evening, in a white room with large windows surrounded by a small lake, elegantly designed flowers and pine trees.

The venue, as a part of Luo Hong Art Museum, showed submissions for the 5th Dulwich Science Art Photo Competition, including winners' works for the year.

The competition received more than 900 submissions from 11 Dulwich College International colleges and high schools, including entries from the founding school in London.

Wild animals, plants and people were all the subjects featured in the submissions.

Some young competitors don't have high tech cameras, yet were still able to capture beauty just the same.

Young souls, innocent eyes

Lauren Z, 14 and a student from Dulwich College Beijing, shot a view of Yulong Snow Mountain with her smart phone.

Her work is a palette of blue and green, the essential shades of Mother Nature.

"I took this photo when my family traveled to Yunnan province last year. This is my first time to this place, and I stayed for one week," Lauren said.

Young yet confident, Lauren smiles lightly in her school uniform, a clean white shirt and checkered pleated skirt.

When asked if she ever highlighted the colors with digital tools, the young girl said the natural view is beautiful enough and the photo didn't need any polish.

Compared to most of her peers in China, Lauren has more time to develop her interests due to the freedom and high-quality educational resources provided by the school.

The students' horizons were also largely broadened by social projects from the school.

One winner from this year's competition, Scott J., took his winning photo during one such experience: A community service trip in Nepal.

The 12-year-old boy, in grey shorts and a white shirt, is fluent in both Chinese and English.

Born in Australia, he came to China at the age of 3 and has studied at Dulwich College Beijing for almost 10 years.
