For the past few years, Photolucida has enjoyed our relationship with Yan Li of High Noon Culture and Art, based in Beijing. Yan Li has coordinated exhibition projects that have involved photographers and curators from Photolucida’s Reviews and Critical Mass programming. This year, a group of photographers working in “Alternative Process” photography traveled to Lishui, China to put together an exhibition under the curatorial eye of Blue Mitchell as part of the 2013 Lishui Photo Festival.
Portland photographer Fritz Liedtke recounts his cross-cultural experience in a compelling and humorous way, with some saavy advice to anyone who may go in the future!
