The Sister City Collaborative exhibition at Missouri Botanical Garden
The Sister City Collaborative: China at the Missouri Botanical Garden is an example of the broad collaborations and cultural initiatives that are the focus of the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum. Organized by IPHF, ten photographers representing St. Louis were invited to Nanjing, China to participate in the 2014 Nanjing Federation of the Arts Festival. This was the first time that photography was allowed into the important annual exhibition.
During their visit, the photographers documented both rural and urban life in China, and have produced a poignant glimpse into this global powerhouse of business and art. The Sister City Collaborative sponsors cultural exchange between other countries and the United States, and will continue in 2015 when ten photographers from Nanjing travel to St. Louis.
