Several Chinese photographers captured the result of a three-year trip to Iran in an exhibition that was well received by the Chinese. Their guide says: This exhibition showed good Photos of Iran, which is very effective in encouraging the Chinese to travel to Iran.
Faezeh Akhoondi, the official Chinese-language guide to Iran tourism who has been studying and researching the culture of Chinese tourists for about 10 years, told ISNA: This Photos of Iran exhibition is the result of the travels of photographers from one of the well-known photography associations in China.
They travel to many countries; From the North Pole to the deserts of Iran. We have seen Iran travel from north to south, east and west several times until recently the achievement of those trips was shown in Photos of Iran exhibition which was very well received and I am sure it will have a great effect on the Chinese and give a more beautiful image. It will create Iran in their minds.
Usually, groups of photographers who come to Iran are not treated very professionally to promote Iran properly. Since my grandfather was a photographer, I have a relative knowledge of their demands on photography trips. I spend more time in Iran and it resulted in the Photos of Iran exhibition.
I also tried to set up a different program for these Chinese masters and photographers. Every time we went to the city, I got in touch with photography associations and took photos from that area, or coordinated with the Association of Cultural Heritage Photographers, and even went to veteran photographers.
All this was done to make the trip to Iran attractive to photography groups arriving from China to encourage more groups. For photography tours, more time should be given to show good Photos of Iran.
