Photo ex­hibit show­cases re­gion’s folk cul­ture

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

Nearly 200 black and white pho­tos with a theme of Shang­hai and Jiang­nan (the re­gion south of the Yangtze River) cul­ture were put on dis­play at Shang­hai Changn­ing Folk Cul­ture Cen­ter on Wed­nes­day, show­cas­ing the re­gion’s cul­tural changes over the decades into a modern me­trop­o­lis, Xin­min Evening News re­ported Thurs­day.

Jiang­nan cul­ture is a big part in Shang­hai res­i­dents’ fash­ion, food, hous­ing and trans­porta­tion.

The de­tails of this lo­cal life­style re­veal the Shang­hainese spirit of ro­bust­ness yet del­i­cate beauty.

Hu Xiaoming, a pro­fes­sor from the East China Nor­mal Univer­sity, thinks that Jiang­nan is the most creative place in China, and the eco­nomic mir­a­cles that have hap­pened in Jiang­nan dis­play this cre­ativ­ity.
