As a form of visual language, imagery should not get divorced from social reality. If we could invite to the festival more culture researchers, historians, anthropologists, sociologists, and painters, the photography festival would break the boundaries of photography, attrad more audience, have a more enduring life, and meanwhile offer a wider scope of knowledge to photographers.摄影要融入社会——中国优秀摄影画册阿尔卡特大奖评委陈海汶谈平遥国际摄影大展参展参评作品 免费阅读 收费下载 A photographer-turned-entrepreneur in Shanghai, Mr. then Haiwen has been pursuing the “photography can get a better development only if it involves in society” concept in both his business and photography practice.

Now the people of Pingyao, a people of a magnanimous character and open mind, have flung open the city gate, welcoming photographers from all corners of the world and receiving their cultural achievement.

The third festival, which had the architectural photography forum and photojournalism forum held separately in Mount Wutai and Hukou Waterfall, two famous scenic spots, was a well-intended move to spread the influence of the Pingyao International Photography Festival to other tourist destinations in the province.漫步平遥赏民居 免费阅读 收费下载 There are some 3,800 rectangular courtyards, 387 well preserved, spread out in this small town. These idiosyncratic domestic buildings have more or less retained the slyle of the Ming and Qing dynasties: the outer walls are usually made of grey bricks bound with white lime mortar reaching up to a height of seven or eight yards with no windows but crenellated tops, which gives it an imposing look, iust like a citadel.平遥人这样“卖”文化 免费阅读 收费下载 I hove set my sights more on the ordinary people living under the ancient roof while appreciating the charms of this old city.

Photographers have found more of an experience or a frame of mind than the pleasures of exchange and learning. They need peace of mind to appreciate work and patience to exchange minds with others. Many a man comes to Pingyao for the exhibitions and workshops. The art taste itself and art slyle of the festival will not be diluted although more and more tourist and cultural events are added to it.平遥小天地 摄影大舞台——旁观2003平遥国际摄影大展 免费阅读 收费下载 There is a variety of performances and parades in every street and lane in Pingyao during the festival, which surely adds color to the events of the festival, The forums, workshops, bars and tea houses are good venues for people to exchange views.

And all these will be forever fixed in our eyes and memories.平遥：广阔与奇特的漫步 免费阅读 收费下载 While you were shifting from one exhibition venue to another, meeting photographers of different styles, you might be able to hear different comments and opinions. Some gave accolades to the ancient city, some ohed and ahed about photographs, and still others offered either approving or detracting remarks on the festival. This festival, with more photos of high quality than the last two, particularly the work of foreign photographers, has put our shortcomings into stark relief. As everyone cherishes the wish that the festival will get better and better, the basis for its progress is to hear different voices of the participants in addition to the joint efforts of the organizing committee, curators and exhibitors.
