Themed “My Motherland and Me”, the large-scale Zhuzhou photography exhibition celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China opened at the Hunan Culture Center on March 6. Four hundred photos are exhibited to enable visitors to feel Zhuzhou’s progress in the past 70 years.
 
Zhuzhou, one of the first group of eight industrial bases to be built after the founding of the PRC, is adjacent to Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province. It has created more than 230 “China’s No. 1” and 20 “World’s No. 1” records in the history of industrial development.
 
After 70-year development, Zhuzhou has grown into a “Pearl on the South Bank of the Xiangjiang River” with over a million inhabitants. The city’s urban construction progresses with each passing day; industrial economy continues to create new high; the rural areas turn more and more prosperous; and, people live and work in peace and contentment. It has earned its fame as an advantageous transportation hub, the “power valley”, a blessed land by Chinese ancestor Shennong, and an open and livable place.
 
The exhibition will last until March 16. It has six parts: “Civilized City”, “Old and New Look”, “Industrial Power”, “Beautiful Village”, “Happy Life”, and “Splendid Overview”. In the “Old and New Look” part, old and new photos taken at the same places are contrasted, presenting the changes in Zhuzhou’s social development and the people’s lives in a most direct and concise way.
