The living streets of The Hague and Shanghai
‘The living streets of Shanghai and The Hague’ was the title of two successful events about street photography. The events were initiated and organised by Five Spices. We joined the forces of street photographers from both Shanghai and The Hague, thus enabling creative exchange. The event in Shanghai, opened by the Consul General Peter Potman, drew plenty of visitors. The exhibition then moved to The Hague.
The opening in The Hague on 24 September attracted very many photographers and individuals interested in photography. Ten photographers, amateurs and professionals, from the Urban Photo Collective talked about their vision on street photography and this was compared to street photography in Shanghai. The head editor of the magazine ‘Fotografie’ interviewed Yee Ling Tang and Marsel Loermans, both professional photographers from China and The Hague respectively.
For the event in Shanghai, the well-known photographer Lu Yuanmin was interviewed by Sue Anne Tay, herself a popular blogger and photographer. Among the works were those of Tui and Tan Tien Yun.
