Co-organized by Shangqi Art and Photographers Association of Nanshan District, Shenzhen, In Translation — The Contexts of Nature takes the form of a parallel project of the 6th Shenzhen International Photography Exhibition.

The main theme “in translation” refers to both the various photographic practices as the translation of nature and the project as a derivation of The Use of Landscape, a collaboration started as a workshop with Michael Höpfner and Iosif Király in 2020.

Featuring artists from Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Bucharest National University of Arts and multiple regions within China, the exhibition invites the public to encounter the nature in a dialogic context.
