Yixian International Photo Festival
November 2 – 8, 2012
COAL + ICE traveled to Anhui Province in November 2012 to participate in the Yixian International Photo Festival, an event which was to coincide with the 2012 Bishan Harvestival. Because of the 18th Party Congress in Beijing, both festivals were cancelled the day before opening. Many people were still able to see the exhibition and Abigail Washburn performed traditional American coal mining songs in the hall (see video). For more information, please read the festival field report.
