The living streets of Shanghai and The Hague - Announcement

Next Saturday, a street photography event is going to take place at Museon that features the work of a couple of urban photographers from Shanghai and Den Haag. The pictures were taken during a couple of weeks in collaboration between photographers from both cities. We inspired each other and reacted on the pictures we received with pictures from our own place.

The project was initiated by the Urban Photo Collective and Five Spices. The first part of the event already took place on September 10 in Shanghai.

I was particularly interested in participating in this project after my visit to China last year. Shanghai was one of my favourite places and impressed me a lot.

My counterpart in Shanghai was Sue Anne Tay. She publishes her street photography on her blog Shanghai Street Stories and in spontaneous street exhibitions. Fortunately, her English is very good, as my attempts to learn Chinese failed miserably ;-) I'm very curious to see what the other photographers did together with their counterparts.

Don't miss the event!

PS. I'll post my pictures after the event, in order not to spoil the surprise ;-) but here is the invitation:
