集美X阿尔勒:东西方对话 国际摄影季
Jimei X Arles: East West Encounters International Photo Festival

Date: November 15-December 16, 2015

Location: Yuanbo Garden, Tan Kan Kee Art Center, Jimei City Center

摄影双年展、摄影三年展以及国际摄影节等形式推广传统及当代摄影艺术,带动相关产业和区域经济文化发展,是当今许多国家、地区的做法。国际著名摄影节法国“阿尔勒摄影节”(les Rencontres d’Arles de la photographie)经历了多年的发展,形成了自己的特色和模式,并且在当今世界经济和文化变革的情况下不断求新。

This day in age, many countries and regions are forming photo biennials, triennials, and international photo festivals to promote traditional and contemporary art photography while spurring on the economic and cultural development of the areas in which they are held. The internationally renowned “Les Rencontres d’Arles” already has an illustrious history and has developed its own unique style and model. Furthermore, it continues to strive for change amidst today’s global economic and cultural transformation.


Jimei X Arles emerges precisely from the convergent needs of both this specialized discipline and the broader public. Xiamen possesses a truly unique cumulative cultural heritage and history of overseas interaction and exchange. Jimei X Arles aims to have a widespread effect upon culture in its neighboring countries and regions, as well as that of the global characteristics of contemporary photography, which originated in Europe.

集美是中国最美城市——厦门的一个行政区,被称为“海上花园”的地方。一条大山脉分出五条小山脉直入两个海湾,形成“五龙戏珠”地形地貌和一系列优美的传说。地杰人就灵。被毛泽东主席誉为“华侨领袖 民族光辉”的陈嘉庚先生生于斯,并创办了中国永久和平学村—-集美学村,十几万的师生在集美求学,创造极致雅美。人文集美形成了软件信息服务、机械装备制造、商务商贸旅游、文化演艺四大主导产业,生活在集美的人们安居乐业,幸福美满。

Jimei is one of China’s most attractive cities—one of Xiamen’s administrative areas, it has been dubbed “The Garden on the Sea.” Its landforms consist of a vast mountain range splitting into five smaller ranges and surrounded by two gulfs, which was the basis for the exquisite traditional saying “five dragons playing with a pearl.”
When the land is beautiful, the people thrive. Chen Jiageng, once called “a radiant overseas Chinese ethnic minority leader” by Chairman Mao Zedong, was born here and established one of the longest standing academic areas in China—Jimei School Village, where tens of thousands of teachers and students continue to study, create, and attain academic excellence.
Cultured Jimei is comprised of software/information technology services, mechanized equipment production, business and commercial tourism, as well as the leading cultural performing arts industry. Life in Jimei is peaceful and content, happy and harmonious.


Jimei X Arles International Photo Festival will rely upon Les Rencontres d’Arles’ extensive international exhibition expertise and content, while incorporating Three Shadows Photography Art Centre’s comparable Asian and Chinese exhibition expertise and content, all strategically situated within Jimei district’s newly developed arts & culture estate. These elements will be synthesized with local civic and cultural resources to create China’s best international photo festival, bringing Jimei into the international public sphere and encouraging the expansion of its cultural industry.

集美X阿尔勒:国际摄影季由厦门市集美区支持,三影堂摄影艺术中心主办。集美X阿尔勒:国际摄影季由阿尔勒国际摄影节主席萨姆•斯道兹(Sam Stourdzé)先生、三影堂摄影艺术中心创办人荣荣先生共同发起,独立策展人李振华先生为执行总监。

Jimei X Arles International Photo Festival is supported by Xiamen, Jimei district and organized by Three Shadows Photography Art Centre. Jimei X Arles International Photo Festival was jointly initiated by Sam Stourdze, Director of Les Rencontres d’Arles, and RongRong, Founder of Three Shadows Photography Art Centre. Independent curator Li Zhenhua will serve as CEO of the event.


Jimei X Arles International Photo Festival is thematically divided as follows: Encounter the East, Fashion & Photography, City Navigation, Double Nostalgia, Local Action, Extended Photography, Audio Visual, and Prize & Collection. The festival will encompass more than ten countries and regions, over a hundred photographers from China and abroad, and over a thousand photographs.
