Description: Mershon Center for International Security Studies Graduate Student Research 2007-08
Ho’s dissertation divides Sha Fei's work into four periods: His membership in Heibei yingshe, the largest black-and white photography society in 1930s Shanghai. His solo exhibitions in Guangzhou and Guilin in 1936 and 1937. His recruitment by the CCP to chronicle the life of the Eighth Route Army during the war. His founding of Jin-Cha-Ji huaboo, a wartime pictorial magazine that later became the major propaganda magazine of the People's Republic of China.
