NANCHANG, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Since 2014, volunteers from a non-profit organization in Nanchang City have kept on taking photos of smiling faces of farmers aged over 70 years old in nearby villages. The portait photos taken by volunteers were given to farmers for free.

By far, the volunteers have taken nearly 50,000 photos for 4,350 people. They aim at collecting high-definition images of 10,000 farmers within 10 years.
