2015 China Exhibit HalperinInternational Photography Collaborative: China 
at the Missouri Botanical Garden is an example of the broad collaborations and cultural initiatives that are the focus of the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum. Organized by IPHF, ten photographers representing St. Louis were invited to Nanjing, China to participate in the 2014 Nanjing Federation of the Arts Festival. This was the first time that photography was allowed into the esteemed annual exhibition.
         
During their visit to China, the photographers documented both rural and urban life in China producing a poignant glimpse into this global powerhouse of business and art.
         
The International Photography Collaborative sponsors cultural exchange between the United States and other countries and will continue in 2015 when ten photographers from Nanjing travel to St. Louis.
