Pingyao International Photography Festival

Pingyao International Photography Festival

RMIT Students took part in the Pingyao International Photography Festival (PIPF), the largest photography festival in China and attracts visitors and participants from all over the world.

The Pingyao International Photography Festival (PIPF) takes place in the city of Pingyao in the Shanxi Province. PIPF is not only an event for the professional photographers, it allows entries of all skill levels which can include both local and international photographers.  

RMIT was the featured University at the festival this year with two main exhibitions, Photography and Education and The Working Photographer. Both exhibitions showcased a range of work from post-graduate students and staff maintaining a commercial photographic practice.

Photography and Education: Post Graduate Photography from RMIT University

This exhibition showcased a range of photography from film-based analogue images to 3D scans and digital constructions, photography's history is transparent and open, the old is new, and what is now considered a part of photography is more extensive than ever before.

The exhibition explored ways in which contemporary photography has evolved in recent years and the way in which it relates to the present time.  

The Working Photographer

The Working Photographer exhibition responded to questions and query's of topics within the broader creative community that addressed visual perception, communication and photography's pervasive use in visual culture.

The exhibition has an ongoing narrative around the relationship with the evolving nature of working photographers in the 21st Century and the growth of contemporary commercial photography.  

The photographers in this exhibition all run independent commercial practices and lecture in photography at RMIT University.
