Fuping county in North China's Hebei Province is hosting a photograph exhibition to review the works of two veteran Chinese photographers: Chen Bo and Gu Di. The ongoing exhibition is divided in three sections that aim to allow audiences to gain a deeper understanding of the two's artworks. 

Both growing up during China's early revolutionary eras, the two witnessed the country's development from a time of war to one of peace. The photos on display are precious memories showing China's former leaders from Chairman Mao to Zhou Enlai. Their news photos pay witness to many historical moments as well as the hardship that Chinese people suffered during the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1931-45) to the Civil War (1946-49). 

The exhibition is hosted by the China Photographers Association and Federation of Literary and Art Circles in Hebei Province.
