Air pollution has been a longstanding complaint among Chinese citizens, especially those living in the urban cities of Beijing and Shanghai where air quality readings are well over 10 times the internationally accepted safety limit.

In an apparent protest against the heavy pollution, this couple from the mainland decided to protest against the issue in their own way. With their traditional wedding outfits on, the couple donned gas masks as they posed in a series of shots around Guomao Bridge in the Chinese capital of Beijing.

The black and white theme echoes how the Beijing skies look like on certain days and is undoubtedly a dramatic portrayal of how perhaps the Chinese are finding it hard to breathe in their own country.
