Chinese Photographers Hold Exhibition in Hong Kong

HONG KONG, August 25 -- "Tradition and New" -- the Art of Landscape Photography by Chinese Photographers Photo Exhibition opened Saturday in the Hong Kong Central Library.

The exhibition showcases up to 320 pieces of photos taken by approximately 300 master Chinese photographers from around the world.

In his opening remarks, Yang Shao Ming, president of the Society of Worldwide Ethnic Chinese Photographers, said that with a long tradition of reverence towards nature in Chinese culture, landscape photography represents a new popular form of art to reflect the national culture.

He hoped that the development of the landscape photography would bring a better understanding of the Chinese cultural values to the world.

He was also pleased that the exhibition is held in Hong Kong, which is the crossroads of the east and the west, enabling it to reach a wider audience. He believed that the exhibition would demonstrate Hong Kong as a fertile land of cultural fusion.

Those who attended the opening ceremony were Tung Chee Hwa, chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region; Wang Fengchao, deputy director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong SAR; and other distinguished guests.
