Luz de España, a photographic exhibition created jointly by the Spanish National Tourism Authority and Happy Valley Guangzhou, will run from November 15 to 27 in Guangzhou. The exhibition is free of charge to the public.
The exhibition will display 50 photographs of the famous Chinese human geographic photographer, Mei Sheng, which were taken during a trip he took in Spain. The photographs cover five different geographic areas of Spain: Madrid, Catalonia, Valencia, Aragon, and Malaga. They explore seven elements of Spanish life: culture, history, festivals, humanity, fashion, gourmet cuisine, and nature. Each work reflects Mei Sheng’s deep understanding of Spain.
Spain has 44 UNESCO World Heritage sites, ranking third in the world. There are 13 world heritage cities, ranking the first of the world. This exhibition shows the rich diversity of Spain’s world heritage. Spain’s tourism counselor in Guangzhou, Antonio de la Morena, believes that this exhibition will let visitors review Spanish world heritage sites through images, while getting to know and appreciate the creative art of Spain. If people hope to get more vivid experiences of world heritage, they can come to get a feel for Spain, through discovering this great treasury of photographs.
Mei Sheng will offer a lecture during the opening ceremony on November 15. Visitors can attend for free. Visitors also are invited to take pictures and share them as wechat moments from November 15 to 27 to have a chance to win a special drawing. Prizes include a round-trip airline ticket to Spain, Spanish paintings, bracelets, sun hats and other items.
