NEWS: My expo banner in China

PF Pingyao 2015 Title banner

My 1980 image Shrouds was recently used on the New Zealand banner at the Pingyao International Photography Festival, a big show in which NZ photographers participated under the title: “Collective Passion – Singular Visions, PhotoForum – A New Zealand Legacy”. Over 70 NZ images were shown at the festival, which opened on 19 September at Pingyao Ancient City, Shanxi Province.

Ian McDonald, co-ordinator for the NZ show, explains that “PIP is considered the most important photography festival in China and is certainly the biggest. All the major gallery dealers and curators in China visit as well a huge influx of visitors who pack the bullet trains down from Beijing. There is a large and sophisticated tourist industry in Pingyao Ancient City, which is why the festival is so well supported by the Government. Large numbers of very keen and well informed students tour the exhibition, which takes at least two days of fairly intensive viewing.”

  1. Congratulations Barney. I loved seeing your photo Shrouds in the Dunedin Art Gallery exhibition. Maybe not as prestigious as the PIP but wonderful to see you recognised with NZ’s greats! Thanks for sharing your brilliance with the world.
