Time sure does fly, it has been a little more than one year since I organized the P.O.V. photography exhibition in M50 Shanghai. P.O.V. was short for point of view, and living in Shanghai I was always curious how the locals saw the world compared to foreigners so I set out to curate an exhibition that contrasted Chinese photographers shooting foreign countries against foreign photographers shooting China.
We sold the prints and we also printed calendars and photo books and donated all proceeds to a local charity called Jiabainong children's orphanage. The exhibition lasted for one week and we managed to raise more than 14,000 rmb.
A little background about the photographers:
Charlie Zhang is a Chinese photographer born in Beijing who specializes in street photography.
"My point of view is to interpret life through the lens, to share my angle and perspective while capturing moments through my travels and in daily life."
