pingyao - 2015

Alex Syndikas, one of our members organised and curated our first international exhibition September 2015. What an amazing experience to say the least. Each member had to submit two images of their choice to the organisers of what is known as the largest photo festival in the world. We were accepted and went on to show our collection in one of the main areas in the cotton factory at The Ping Yao International Photo Festival.

Tim Cushan and Rodney Stewart represented the Co-Op and  were welcomed with open arms by the organisers. Amy and her crew were brilliant and with help from our interpreter  put together and presented a slick, professional presentation of our work that drew crowds of spectators, all curious as to what the Australians had on show.

The Co-op representatives were interviewed by Beijing TV network, various photography magazines and both Rod and Tim made contacts with both photographers and curators from all over the world.
