The Light of Florida goes to China

It is an exciting prospect to share our images of Florida with the Chinese people. I participated in the group show that went to the 2nd annual Photography Festival in Duyun, Southern China. It was a wonderful experience and the show had strong international representation. The headliner from the United States was Ansel Adams, and we had an outstanding group of work from our members. Below are some photos from the 2004 show.

There are obvious concerns about the Chinese lack of respect for copyrighted work and their history is not good on this topic. We can only trust our counterparts at the Chinese Photographers Association to respect our rights and only use the images for prints in the exhibit for which they are intended.

I would strongly urge anyone who has the chance to go to the show to attend and represent our group in person. It will be a very worthwhile experience and great travel adventure.

Join us for a visual presentation of the un-edited submissions for the Florida light book promotion project. See below, To read more about the project and see the book mock-up that was presented to the State Film Board. While you here sign is as a follower and post a comment.

Contributors can applaud yourselves and take a bow, you deserve it for submitting a fabulous collection of images for the project. Everyone is invited, members and guests come and view the collection before selections are made by a panel of independent editors. You will have a chance to meet the other members that submitted work and get to know the faces behind the images.

The images will be juried for our book by the end of this month, but before that, we would like to share them all with you in this ASMP Open Screen Event, Open To The Public.
