Sponsored by Information Office of the People’s Government of Beijing Municipality and All-China Journalists Association, the activity of “Photographers from Belt and Road Countries Focusing on Beijing” held its opening ceremony at Grand Canal Forest Park of Tongzhou District of Beijing on May 7, 2018.
As a cultural exchange project based on the 20-year-old brand event of “Foreign Photographers Shooting Beijing”, ten photographers from ten Belt and Road countries like Russia, Belarus, Poland, Serbia and Latvia are invited to tour and shoot in Beijing.
During the week-long shooting, photographers will work on the themes of Beijing’s contemporary cityscape and citizens’ work and life. They will also take a one-day panoramic shot by using the latest 720-degree panoramic photography technology. The panoramic images taken will eventually compose video works to be the new media works for showcasing Beijing’s city image.
It is learned that established in 1999, the organizing committee of the “Foreign Photographers Shooting Beijing” event has invited more than 100 photographers from more than 50 countries and regions around the world to shoot in Beijing. Hundreds of thousands of wonderful works they shot have recorded and witnessed Beijing’s development and prosperity over the past 20 years.
