13 April: 8th Shanghai Photographer Night

This and early next week is all about street photography.

Come next Wednesday, April 13th, I will be part of a street photography show at Dada Bar in what has become a regular popular arts event: the Shanghai Photographer Night. Started in 2008 by Shanghai-based photographer Tim Franco, photographers showcased their work in slideshow form with accompanying music as part of their art.

As co-organizer for this upcoming event, I will be featuring a participating street photographer each day for the next week as an insight into their work. Stay tuned!
