Chinese images from the Cultural Revolution

Oinlin Company

Li Zhensheng – the Chinese photography in the Cultural Revolution. Pictures from 1964 till 1976.

Li Zhensheng was the one person who, through his unique photographic legacy, could convey this truth on the printed page. A few guidelines were established up-front: none of the photographs would be cropped; the images would be presented in the most accurate chronological order possible so as to best depict the historical process; precise captions would accompany the images, with facts verified through additional research and double-checked against the archives of The Heilongjiang Daily, where the photographer worked for over eighteen years.
