“Love Between Two Cranes” Exhibition By Mr Wang Keju
Newcastle China Week 2020 has developed the theme of “Wildlife Sustainability” and will be held in a virtual world through running this online photographic exhibition this year.
The University of Newcastle is celebrating our 55th anniversary this year since it became an independent university in 1965. The year of 2020 marks a special year of our legacy and continued commitment to our regions, our communities and our responsibilities. An important value under the University’s “Looking Ahead” strategic priorities is our commitment to “Sustainability”.
“Love Between Two Cranes” is an amazing and meaningful photo collection by Mr Wang Keju. Mr Wang is an artist of national treasure level and also known as “father of red-crown cranes” in China. He was named one of Top Ten Global Chinese Cultural Persons by Chinese Culture Promotion Society and Phoenix Satellite Television in 2017.
Through the lens of Mr Wang and his passion for wildlife protection, this photographic exhibition of “Love Between Two Cranes” in his own words, features the epic love story between two red-crowned cranes: Dream (father crane) and Cloud (mother crane) in Zhalong Wetland in northeast China. Their story was beautifully captured by Mr Wang over a long period of 7 years.
Our wildlife has the same right as us to love, live and thrive sustainably on our planet earth.
