From every household we could dig up some old photos that would not only show the memories of the family but also enable the rediscovery of history. The old photo exhibition, “Impressions of the Eras—20th Anniversary of Old Photos,” is on show at the Yuezhong Museum of Historical Images in Shenzhen until Nov. 20.

每个人家里都会珍藏一些老照片,当这些老照片聚在一起,勾勒出的不仅是一个家庭的记忆,也是历史最大限度的重现。目前,越众历史影像馆2017年度大展之“时代的印迹——《老照片》二十周年纪念展”正在深圳举行。展览由越众历史影像馆与山东画报出版社共同策划,冯克力、黄丽平联合策展,已入选《2017年全国美术馆馆藏精品展出季活动》,据悉,此展将展至11月20日。

 

The exhibition consists of two parts, namely documents and selected photos, from the book “Old Photos.” A total of 100 photos from the “Old Photos” were selected, including ones showing the scenery near Chongwen Gate in Beijing and the pioneering Shanghai Nanjing Road back at the end of the 19th century; a circus performance in the countryside and a Western-style food dinner in Lanzhou at the beginning of the 20th century; and the drill of the New Army and the overseas inspection of the imperial guards at the end of the Qing Dynasty (1840-1912).

正值《老照片》丛书出版20周年,此次展览的内容主要由文献及《老照片》佳作精选两大单元组成。照片部分重点展示从《老照片》所刊登过的过万张照片中精选出来的100个瞬间,包括19世纪末北京城崇文门一带的风光和开风气之先的上海南京路;20世纪初的乡村马戏团表演以及在兰州举办的一次西餐会;清末的新军会演和禁卫军出洋考察;1919年高等学堂的自修室;1929年举办的全国首届国货博览会;1930年代的山东模范监狱;上世纪80年代初来中国访问的法国总统费朗索瓦·密特朗,等等。
