It’s been three years since the competition, but we felt like the artists and the work that was contributed deserve to be featured. The event, Meeting Place FotoFest Beijing 2006, was a joint effort by FotoFest International and Hewlett Packard China. The competition was an attempt to create new opportunities and provide a platform for contemporary Chinese photographers, and their work, to become available to the global presence of the art. The four day event proved to be an incredible learning experience for hundreds of people who came together in Beijing.
The two artists in this post are of 36 photographers who were selected by international reviewers as “some of the most interesting artist/photographers they encountered at the Meeting Place Beijing”. To see the rest, click through their website, where all 36 artists have mini portfolios!
