Living Yangtze by Eric Valli

 A multi-media exhibition sponsored by Swarovski Waterschool

On September 9, Eric Valli’s Living Yangtze multi-media exhibition, sponsored by Swarovski Waterschool, launched in Shanghai.  The distinguished French photographer, film director and author Eric Valli travelled over 6 months along the Yangtze River, documenting the lives of those who live alongside it. In his Living Yangtze Exhibition in Jingan Park, a series of stunning images and short films are being displayed around the park from September 9-27. In tandem with the photo and video exhibition, an interactive water education zone has been installed in the park to educate and engage children in learning about water.

"Living Yangtze started with a basic observation: as human beings we have a tendency to forget things we don’t like to hear about, but we remember what emotionally touches us for the rest of our lives. It was 2013 that I saw this incredible, beautiful lake not far from Wuhan, with bamboo sticking out of it." Quote and photo by Eric Valli.

SISC has not only supported the journey and exhibition of Eric Valli, but also contributed to his new book Living Yangtze with a chapter written by Liu Yunhua, founder and director of SISC. Also, SISC has helped to plan and set up a booth at the venue to share water education with the visitors and their children.
