Chinese Photographers Association - Oct 2009
World Heritage in China
1 - 29th October 2009
The historic city of Bath, in which the Royal Photographic Society is based, will be the first stop of the “World Heritage in China” photographic exhibition world tour. The 38 enchanting photos are all shot by Chinese photographers. From the collection, you will not only enjoy the unique characters of all the 38 World Heritage Sites in China, but also feel the charm of the combination of the great world heritage spirits and traditional Chinese culture.
The Chinese Photographers Association (CPA) is the first and largest national photographic organisation in China. It is a professional organisation consisting of photographers from various ethnic groups throughout the country. Documenting daily life to express social characters is an obligation which could not be ignored by any photographers.
The term “World Heritage” refers to those natural landscapes and historic cultural sites with outstanding meaning and universal value, as recognised and designated by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee. World Heritage Sites are signposts, marking the path of human development and culture, creations of nature reflecting the beauty and record of the history of the Earth, as well as a common wealth shared by all human beings. Up to July 2009, 890 World Heritage Sites from all over the world have been recognised, and China owns 38 World Heritage Sites, ranking 3rd on the World Heritage List.
Photography is a universal language, a bridge connecting different nations to communicate. As photographers, the CPA would like to share the glory of human civilization through images with everyone from all over the world.
As one of the most influential and authoritative organisations specialising in photography, the CPA currently has 32 group members of photographers associations from various provinces, cities and autonomous regions, 11 group members of professional photographic organisations, and over 12,000 individual members. A great number of outstanding Chinese photographers, experts in various photographic aspects, including theory, education, publication, events, techniques and production, have joined us, which makes the CPA the photography organisation with the largest number of members and affiliated organisations in the world.
Executive President of the China Photographers Association, Chief Curator of “World Heritage in China” photographic exhibition, Mr. Li Qianguang said: “From the exhibition, we believe that our visitors will come to a better appreciation of the beauty and importance of world heritage, and come to a better understanding of the spiritual connotations of the heritage sites.”
“World Heritage in China” Photographic Exhibition Committee said: “Natural Gift, Colourful Creations! Our Gems, Our Home!”
