“Documentary Photographers in the New Century”

The opening ceremony of the exhibition, “Documentary Photographers in the New Century” was held on June 23, 2010, in the Shanghai Exhibition Center. The exhibition calls attention to the forces of rapid technological change from film-based photography to digital photography, and how these forces affect the ways in which photographers picture the globalized world. The curator of the New York-based International Center of Photography (ICP), the world-renowned photography curator Christopher Phillips thinks highly of the new perspective of documentary photography in this exhibition, which is one of the leading shows in size and scope all over the world. It brings together 420 pieces of outstanding works contributed by 14 prominent photographers from 12 countries, which constructs an open survey of the trends of the documentary photography in the digital era.

Sema Balaman acted as an agent to select and suggest photographer's works to be included in the exhibition from Balbal Corporation's vast pool of artist archives from Central Asia.
