The Image Memory of Lianzhou

“The Image Memory of Lianzhou” presents a series of photographs taken in Lianzhou by three local pioneers of photography, Wang Dongfu, Du Jixi and Pan Renshi, who have left behind twenty years of photographic memories of their hometown. Revolutionary street parades marching along the street where the Lianzhou Museum of Photography was built, soldiers building plank roads on steep cliffs, statues and landmarks built in the Qin Dynasty which have now long ceased to exist. From 2016 on, through the collaboration with local photographers and former Lianzhou cultural sector officials Pan Wei and Huang Zhaiyu, the Lianzhou Museum of Photography discovered and digitalized more than 300 archive images taken by the three local photographers. The exhibition is the result of this 3 years research project.
