China has re-emerged as a dominant place in the modern world, yet the Yunnan province in western China, while colorful and exotic, has a less-hurried, more reflective way of life. The unique meld of a variety of ethnic people, their colorful dress, food and landscape give the visitor to Yunnan an exciting, sensuous treat.
The Linden Gallery is hosting a photographic exhibit which features 24 photographers from across the country, who, under the direction of noted photographer Douglas Beasley, are presenting a rich, artful depiction of the beauty of Yunnan and its people. The exhibit can be viewed from Sept. 2 through Oct. 19 at the Linden Gallery in Ellison Bay.
The participants in this show have all enjoyed studying the philosophy and practice of photography with Beasley, while being amiably hosted and expertly guided by Jeanee and Brian Linden in their historical Chinese mansion in the center of Yunnan.
For the past five years, the Lindens have been hosting a group of photographers to China led by Beasley.
