Virtual Exhibition “Tengger – god, land and people”

This virtual show marks a milestone of my research on certain aspects of Tengger. It also questions the concept of pre-conceived ideologies regarding culture, people and the role of the documentarian.

Congratulations to my student, Ms Tang Jingwen

I like to congratulate my student, Ms Tang Jingwen, for winning an Excellence Award in the recent Silk Road Youth International Photography Competition (12-18yo category).

This year, there were 108,281 youth participants with 254,301 works submitted to the competition. Each category has 42 awards (4 categories). This means, each participant only has 0.16% (averaged) probability of winning an award. An extremely difficult feat.

Jingwen’s work will be showed at the Photo Beijing Festival 2020.

Below is an extract of her work titled, “Grandfather’s Hands”.
