"During the past twenty-five years, Chinese artists have reinvented photography as a art form. Before 1979, and especially during the Cutural Revolution mobilized by Mao Zedong to reinvigorate Communism in China between 1966 and 1976, publications and exhibitions of photographs served strict propagandist purposes; unofficial photography remained private. The apperances of the first unofficial photo club and exhivition in Beijing in 1979 changed this situation fundamentally. Since then, many such clubs have been organized by independent curatiors and artists. In the process, contemporary Chinese artists' use of the medium has evolved from imitating Western styles to developing an original language and character."-Wu Hung
