2016 Datong International Natural Ecology Photography Exhibition

Datong used to be an old fashioned coal mining city, sitting on significant reserves of coal, and had developed a reputation as one of China's most polluted cities. Yet in recent years, Datong has been seeking a sustainable way to develop its economy which has brought significant changes to the city. It now has become a national and provincial garden city, being far more environmentally friendly than before. In order to demonstrate the fruits of ecological protection, Datong, together with China Photographic Publishing House and Global Photography, is to hold the biggest photography exhibition of this year, presenting over 2200 photographs.

The exhibition will feature a 2.5 km exhibition line, demonstrating works of more than 300 Chinese photographers and 300 foreign photographers. Audience may have a closer look at the spectacular photographs, as well as direct contact with several famous photographers. The exhibition serves as a window for the rest of the world to see a unique Datong.
