Focus on China: The Lishui International Photo Festival
This past November, I was invited, along with thirty photographers, to exhibit work at the Lishui International Photo Festival in China. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the festivities, but was incredibly grateful for the visual feedback from my fellow photographers. Douglas Ethridge has stepped up to the Lenscratch plate and is willing to share some of his experiences. This will be a two-part post. Thank you, Doug, for your insights and images!
On the photo trail to Lishui by Douglas Ethridge
In late November, I had the opportunity to exhibit work from my series “Selective Memories” at the Lishui International Photo Festival in Lishui, China.
The Chinese curator Wang Zheng invited a group of 30 overseas photographers and 20 curators- in total more than 60 photographers were exhibited in addition to a like number of Chinese photographers. It was an honor to be there, and fascinating to see so much good work exhibited in such a beautiful setting.
So instead, I decided to share some random moments and thoughts from along the way as I traveled from Shanghai to Lishui to Hangzhou and back to Shanghai.
Tomorrow, Doug will introduce you to Jean Loh and three of his artists….
