In the 1970s, under the high pressure of the “cultural revolution”, Chinese people’s thoughts were in a state of repression. In the 1980s, after the end of the cultural revolution, when ideological control became loose and the economy recovered, China entered a period of development again. Exchanges among countries were more frequent, and the western post-modernism trend of thought was introduced into China, which had a great impact on Chinese literary and artistic creation. The documentary tradition of photography began to recover, and people began to try to inject personal feelings into the language of photography in addition to exploring the language of photography itself.
