The first large-scale photography exhibition which ran from May 1-10 in Wanping ancient city, Beijing, is on-line now. The theme of the exhibition was "Social Documentary Photography and China Today 1949-2009", bringing together a large number of outstanding and classic Chinese documentary photography works for the first time in history.
Wanping city was built in 1637 and located in the southern part of Beijing. In 1937 the July 7 Incident broke out here. Late in the 20th century the Beijing government restored the original city. It is now on its way to becoming an international photography city, but still needs a lot of effort and support.
