    An exhibition on landscape photography on two of China’s scenic places will be held to showcase local photographers’ skills under very different and extreme weather conditions.

    In Inner Mongolia, gone were the lush grasslands that many have come to associate with the country. Instead, the photographers had to pit their skills against the harsh winter winds and vast white landscape before them. Equally challenging were the heat & strong lighting conditions that the Zhang Jia Jie group encountered while attempting to capture the scenic contours of the landscape there. Weather aside, the photographers entered terrains and places that were previously unexplored, even by local photographers of the country.

    Visitors to this exhibition will see picturesque shots of the following :

    Inner Mongolia – this is China’s third largest province and is also the widest by its latitude. It is noted primarily for its vast grasslands that come complete with mushroom-like yurts and shepherds and horsemen herding their flocks.

    Zhang Jia Jie - located in the northwest of Hunan province, this prefecture beauty has 76% mountainous area. It is dominated by more than 3,000 narrow sandstone pillars and peaks, many over 200 metres high. Between the peaks lie ravines and gorges with streams, waterfalls and caves.

    Phoenix Town (Feng Huang Cheng) – this ancient town in the western boundary of Hunan province has a history spanning 1,300 years with residential buildings, bridges, towers and pagodas dated from the Ming and Qing dynasties (1644 to 1911).

    Jinshanling Great Wall – no show is complete without a feature on this Seven Wonders of the World. The Inner Mongolia group had a stop-over at the Yanqing County to climb the steep & winding slopes of the Jinshanling Great Wall built during the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644).

    Chinese Version:

    新加坡摄影学会将于3月29日至4月19日在实利基艺术中心陆运涛展览厅举行 《美的化生》摄影展,展出80幅会员与去年7月与12月间组团到湖南张家界一带及内蒙古进行采风的创作结晶 。

    在这次的摄影展里,除了可以欣赏到清烟在群山里飘渺升华的美景,也可感受 到雪地冰凝的冷寂。在这两个截然不同的世外桃源,没有尘世间的喧哗,唯有清气、烟雾、风雪、偶尔会有悠悠徒 步的农民、牧民、牛、羊和马。


    学会及影展开放时间:
    星期一至星期五:下午2时至晚上10时
    星期六和星期日:中午12时至傍晚6时

    Cheers !

    Pretty good stuffs. Some are quite inspirational. But I do find some of the photos a tad over-sharpened.

    Looks great! My dad used to frequent these places and paint out of it.
    The power of the L, in the palm of my hands.
