An photo exhibition commemorating the 90th birth anniversary of Zhou Haiying, the son of famous 20th century Chinese writer Lu Xun, opened at the National Art Museum of China Saturday.

The exhibition, titled "Moments of Memory," for the first time revealed to the public over 100 pieces of photos taken by Zhou.

Content included the lives in Shanghai during the 1940s, in particular the photos concerning middle class families and lanes, as well as lives in Beijing during the 1950s.

Zhou was born in September 1929 in Shanghai and studied in the physics department of Peking University in the 1950s. He was an expert in radio communication.

His father Lu Xun, who died in 1936, was among the leading Chinese writers who helped kick Chinese literature into the modern era with novels such as "The True Story of Ah Q" and "A Madman's Diary."

"The sensitivity and vigor of Zhou's photos reflect the social ecology and living environment of people from an era," said Chen Xiaobo, curator of the exhibition.

Organized jointly by the National Art Museum of China and Lu Xun Culture Foundation, the exhibition will last until March 17.
