The 13th EIU Photo Class Exhibition held at Ryugaheon Gallery in Seoul, Republic of Korea ended with success on 13 December. The exhibition goes back-to-back with the exhibition held last 18 September in Anichkov Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia to share to the Korean public the work of the participants.
Under the title “Privet”, a common Russian greeting, the exhibition showcased photos taken by participants during the photo-taking field trips of the 13th EIU Photo Class in St. Petersburg and Veliky Novgorod, Russia. During the opening of the exhibition on 3 December, Korean student participants and photographers of the 13th EIU Photo Class and previous classes, as well as the Korean public and photo enthusiasts attended.

2015 marks the 10th year of the programme and has reached many young people in the Asia-Pacific, implementing the programme in various countries including the Philippines, Bhutan, Palau, Laos, Bangladesh, Iran, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Tonga, Indonesia, Turkey and Russia. The photos of the EIU Photo Class can be seen through the EIU Photo Class Archive, opened for the use of learners of EIU and GCED worldwide:


The EIU Photo Class, APCEIU’s youth-targeted programme that started in 2006, utilizes the art of photography to enable the participants to zoom in the various aspects of culture based on their own understanding and reinterpret it through their photographs. This has encouraged the young participants to become active content developers rather than passive recipients of knowledge and skills that are passed on to them by adults and professionals.
