Established in 2001, the Pingyao International Photography Festival has become one of China's most popular events each year. Held in the old town of Pingyao, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, the festival combines ancient culture with contemporary photography.
Australia's own Head On Photo Festival is attending the event and staging an exhibition that features Artists from New South Wales. Two of my images have been selected to feature in the exhibition. "Freedom" won 3rd place in the Landscape Awards at Sydney's 2017 Head On Festival, and "Under the Weather" was a Finalist in 2016.
Held from the 19th through the 25th of September 2017, the Pingyao Festivities will also include a short film festival as well as a lacquer art show. Looks to be a wonderful, culture infused event.
