23 Stunning Moments From The 2015 Shanghai Art Fair. Words Can’t Describe The Last One.

Photo Shanghai just wrapped up its annual international fair this past weekend. The event is on its second year and although it may be a new exhibit, over 500 pieces of artwork were for sale during the three day-event. The exhibition had 50 international galleries from 20 countries showcasing famous photographers. It was also a great opportunity for up-and-coming Chinese artists to gain exposure.

The event was held at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre in Shanghai, China. It was organized by the World Photography Organization. The art fair had curated museum-style works as well as images fused together with other mediums.

Scott Gray, CEO of WPO, says the success of the exhibit is simple, “people enjoy photography; they digest it daily. You don't need a course in art history to understand it."

Here are some of the featured works at the event.
