Into the Darkroom of the History of China

  • Text by Karchun Leung

Zhou Haiying, son of Luxun, is a China photography pioneer from the late 1940s who created more than 20,000 photography works throughout his life. However, his outstanding photography talents have for so long remained unknown to the public. He officially started his photography career in 1946, documenting the city with his unique aesthetics. He was the last outstanding photographer in the Republic ages, and one of the first generation of excellent photographers in New China.

After nearly a year’s preparation, "Zhou Haiying Early Photography" exhibition, organised by Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art and Shanghai Luxun Culture Development Center, will open at the Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art showcasing the history of China from his unique point of view.

Zhou Haiying runs to October 9 at Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art @
