Each year, China is rapidly establishing itself as the world’s second great economic superpower and its influence can be seen right across the continent of Europe from industrial, commercial and cultural sections to the rapid growth in Chinese citizens visiting Europe, and studying and working across Europe. In turn, China has emerged as a major export market for goods produced in Europe, spanning everything from cars to haute couture. China has never been so important for Europeans.
China Photo Almanac helps to forge a new understanding in Sino-European relations, thereby enhancing international friendship with positive spin offs for cultural industries and manufacturers of specialised cameras, photographic and editing equipment.
The rise of China is one of the major global changes impacting on today’s world, yet many people in Europe, including in the UK, remain unaware of China’s contribution to cultural and artistic advances. This book, drawing together the work of leading photographers and artists, helps to address this deficiency.

It will be distributed in the global photographic festival, Photo Basel, Art Basel and international book fairs. such as Photo Paris in November 2018, Photo London in May 2019, Hong Kong Book Fair in July 2018, Frankfurt book fair in September 2018.
