The Asia-Pacific photo exhibition of the year

PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai takes place from 8-10 September and will showcase some truly dazzling imagery

If you like great photography, a trip to Shanghai in September may be in order.

The fourth annual PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai exhibition takes place from 8-10 September, giving collectors, buyers and curators the chance to get up close to some of the most exciting talents in Asia.

It will also be the first major exhbition of works by renowned Chinese artist Ren Hang since his death in February. ‘In China due to censorship issues, his controversial works were often not able to be displayed in public,’ says Peipei Han, PHOTOFAIRS, Associate Director China. ‘As one of the new generation of Chinese photographer, he influenced younger and emerging photographers in China and has received great recognition abroad. He left a large body of work with his iconic style.’

The exhibition is designed to provide a platform for emerging Chinese and Asian artists, but will also showcase the work of international artists.

There are 30 VIP preview tickets (8 September), which include a private bilingual tour, available to Marco Polo Club members. For details, visit
