A joint-venture between the Chinese Photographers Association and the National Gallery of Namibia, the photographs showcase the beautiful landscape and different customs.

The exhibition that is running under the theme Perspectives: A Creative Dialogue between Namibian and Chinese Photographers is being held at the National Gallery of Namibia.

The Chinese Charge d’Affaires Wu Wei said photography is a wonderful flower of art and that China and Namibia are both blessed with rich natural landscapes and cultural heritage.

“Photographers interpret their appreciation of their motherland with photos, thus make the audience acquaint with the other’s enchanting realm and that depicts the full meaning of cultural exchange,” Wu said.

Wu also said that he believed that the exhibition could bring the two countries closer.

In his opening address at the national gallery, Liu Yu, Director of Photographic Art Center of China Federation of Literary and Arts Circles, said that photography could bridge understanding and friendship between China and Namibia.

“Through cultural exchanges of photography, we could open our hearts, broaden our horizon, learn from each other and build grater consensus among us, writing a new chapter for cultural exchanges and mutual learning,” Liu said.

According to Liu, the photographs do not only show featured landscapes and cultures, but also witness the long-lasting friendship between the peoples of the two countries.

Professor Hercules Viljoen, head of the National Gallery of Namibia said the photographs on exhibition created a special interaction and dialogue between their particular views of the world they inhabit. Enditem
