First Photographer Association

Date(s)
1913

This year, the Chin Woo Athletic Association created the Chinese first photographic department in 1919. As one of the first public martial arts institutes in China, Jing Wu intended to use martial arts to save China and express their martial arts ideology (Roberts 2013). At that time, the photograph was one of the best propaganda machines, so they created a department to propagate their ideology.
