China's victory over poverty is a story that needs to be remembered forever and the stories of the millions of people who took part in the country's poverty alleviation efforts should be shared with more people. 

A new exhibition at the National Museum of China reveals this historical movement through the lens of nearly 150 photographers, whose 180 photos record the changes that have taken place throughout the country.  

The Field of Hope exhibition, hosted by China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and China Photographers Association, includes two sections showcasing local people's efforts and the changes they have brought to their hometowns in key areas like a "cliff village" perched on an 800-meter-high cliff. 

According to the China Photographers Association, the photos on display at the exhibition were selected from among a vast number of works submitted through various online sites and social media platforms.
