Since its invention, it has greatly inﬂuenced the life of every individual. From the moment it was born, photography has left a deep mark on historical representation, becoming a narrator and carrier of modern, global civilization. In today's globalized vision of the cultural landscape, the art of photography is playing a greater role in the evolution of every culture.
Showing Chinese contemporary photography with the work of older European, American, and Japanese photographic masters provides a way to connect Chinese contemporary photography and international photographic culture. The exhibition makes apparent each different image tradition's uniqueness, exploring the value of the image in this era of rapidly changing history and envisioning the use and signiﬁcance of photography in the society of the future.
