It marks the first time for Duan, who has been a shutterbug for a few decades, to showcase his black-and-white photos of rural China to the public.

Lai's works focus more on the abstract aspects of life. "When I detect an instant connection, I will press the shutter. I don't do retouching, so the photo will be as it was," Lai said.

Music producer Zhang Yadong believes photography suits his quiet nature. "I love shooting objects instead of people. Sometimes a flower, a pond or even a shaver in my bathroom," he said.

Poet Yu Jian, on the other hand, believes photos can send messages. "Every photo is telling us something. When I write, I transform my ideas into words, and when I shoot, into images," said Yu, "Normally I will blend in the surroundings to catch a glimpse of reality in my subjects."

The exhibition runs through June 30.
