Photo exhibition captures charm of Huangpu's architectural legacy
A photo exhibition of historic architecture in Huangpu District opened at Shanghai History Museum on Saturday.
The exhibition features award-winning photos from a photography competition on the theme held by the museum and the Huangpu District government this year.
Huangpu is the smallest district in Shanghai, but one in six of the city's immovable cultural heritage items and one in four top historic buildings are found here. They total over 900 and date back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
The competition attracted about 5,000 entries covering 80 historic spots.
The museum has been holding photography competitions on historic architecture together with several other districts, but it’s the first time that an exhibition after the competition has been held at the museum.
It was the first time that the competition included a category for smart phone pictures.
The exhibition is in the No. 2 and No. 3 exhibitions halls on the second floor of the west building and runs until July 7.
