“Infinite Realism: Humanism in Chinese Photography from 1920s to 1980s” displays the evolution of photographyas a creative medium in China. When photography was introduced to China in themid-1800s, it was mainly used for visual documentation and as a tool forportrait drawing. As China faced numerous crises in the early 1900s, thepolitical movement of communism developed. Proletarian revolutionary literatureand art caused a rift in the Chinese literary and art circles. Creativesgrappled with grounding their work in reality and the experiences of ordinarypeople. With this renewed interest in reality, photographers recognized thepossibilities of the medium and began injecting humanist ideology into theirphotographs.
