WPGA Biennial International Exhibition in Argentina !

I was invited to participate in a biennial exhibition organized by the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards (WPGA). The selected artists had been warded in the 1st and 2nd edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award, Jacob Riis Award, 1st and 2nd edition of the Pollux Award, and other competitions organized by WPGA during 2010 and 2011.

From Norway we were five women who participated.

This was an International Biennial of Artistic and Documental photography, held at Centro Borges in Buenos Aires in Argentina, between January 19 and February 27 2012.

The Ministry of Culture of Argentina and the Embassies of Austria, Poland, Denmark, Norway, Peru, Finland, Germany and Belgium sponsored the exhibition, in benefit of Save the Children and FLENI foundations. It was seen as one of the most important photographic events in Latin America.

The works was donated by the artists, and was auctioned at the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires in February 2012. I was very happy when I received the message that my picture “Harmony” was one of the ones that were sold at the auction!
