Guanghua Photo Studio

The Nanjing Guanghua Photo Studio was established in 1928 by Qian Shuzi and Wang Guixun. As an official Kuomintang photo studio, they primarily served senior military figures, for example Chiang Kai-shek. In 1937 the studio moved from Nanjing to Chongqing along with the government, returning to Nanjing after the war with Japan was over.
