Event Description

Zhou Haiying, son of Luxun, was engaged in photography from late 1940s and 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 photography career in 1946 around, and excelled in photography technology and aesthetics. In effect, he was the last outstanding photographer in the republic ages, and one of the first generation of excellent photographers in New China.In 1948 around, Zhou Haiying took a great deal of street photographs featured by grass-root people, which reached the artistic peak in the republic ages. He was also the only one who recorded the new era of the political consultative conference. In 1948, several democrats, including Guo Moruo and Li Jisheng, proceeded northward by boat from Hong Kong for attending the first political consultative conference; Zhou Haiying recorded this historical process through high-quality photography which constituted the only document-based proof of the new political consultative conference.
