Fine Art Photography: Beijing, China + Murakami’s GEISAI #11

With the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games just a few days away, I was excited to find this online gallery of Chinese photographers.

From the Meeting Place FotoFest Beijing 2006 website:

“In October 2006, FotoFest International, China Hewlett Packard and a team of Chinese photographers and businessmen collaborated to create an international portfolio review program for Chinese photographers. Modeled on FotoFest’s portfolio review program in Houston, TX, the Meeting Place FotoFest Beijing was an unprecedented event in China. From 278 Chinese photographic artists, this web gallery presents 34 artists selected by participating reviewers.”

And if you happen to be in Japan this month, check out GEISAI #11, the one-of-a-kind art fair conceived by Takashi Murakami which allows artists to exhibit their work directly, without a commercial gallery, to an audience of collectors, curators and art enthusiasts.
