I was thrilled when the organizers of the Auckland Festival of Photography informed me that my photo submission for the Auckland Photo Day 2012 has been chosen by an international jury to be included into an exhibition showcasing the images of 42 Auckland photographers in Pingyao, China. Yes, my photo made it to China before I had a chance to discover The Middle Kingdom myself.
As part of a cultural exchange this has been a great chance for New Zealand’s biggest city to show how locals see their hometown. It has been a great chance for each of the 42 photographers as well to have their photos seen by over 200,000 visitors.
Thank you Nikon Auckland Photo Day!
