Latin America–China

Extending the Conversation ~

Following the highly successful series of interviews with Australian photomedia artists published in ‘PhotoWorld’  in 2013, the Chinese magazine has commissioned Alasdair Foster to write a further 12 articles based on conversations with photographers in Latin America. 2014 opened with the Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes  whose work features on the front cover of the January edition and across a 12-page spread inside.

During the year Alasdair Foster will interview artists from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay. In line with CDC’s mission to encourage empathy through visual dialogue, the commission represents a valuable platform through which to open up new cultural conversations across the richly diverse Asia-Pacific region.
