CMPG Exhibition opens the 23rd at Maya

One of the many fabulous photos from locally based photographers that will be on display at Maya Lifestyle Mall from January 23 to February 7, 2016.

The Chiang Mai Photographic Group will be holding their 8th annual exhibition at Maya Lifestyle Shopping Center and offers a remarkably diverse collection featuring over 100 mounted pictures by 35 photographers from half a dozen countries now based in Chiang Mai.

Maya has once again kindly given the group a great location on the 3rd Floor next to the glass elevators and the show opens daily from Saturday, 23rd January to Sunday, February 7th. The Grand Opening will be at 4:00pm on Saturday Jan 23rd when US Consul General Michael Heath will be cutting the ribbon.

This compilation of arresting images is our eighth exhibition and illustrates once again that there’s a lot more to be photographed than the usual fare of temples, hill tribes and sunsets! Using equipment ranging from simple point-and-shoot cameras to the latest digital SLRs, members have created a stimulating show that will quickly convince you that it’s a keen eye for a picture that really counts. Previous years’ events have met with much critical acclaim and this year’s features more black and white photographs and an even greater selection of unusual and sometimes challenging subjects.

The CMPG is a non-profit organisation which aims to further all aspects of the picture taking abilities of its members through the sharing of skills and mutual support in an informal and inclusive atmosphere. For more information visit cmphotogroup.com. The group offers thanks to sponsors Canon, Photo Bug, Digital Photo Shop, CityLife and Maya.
