Shanghai artist Gangfeng Wang was the first freelance photographer in China.  After growing up in Shanghai during the Cultural Revolution, and graduating from high school in 1975, he was sent to work in an orchard on a government run farm.

In 1977 he was retrained to play the violin in a Revolutionary Orchestra whose sole purpose was to inspire the 30,000 workers at the Great Leap Forward Commune where he lived.  In 1980 he was sent back to Shanghai to work as a machi (showing 500 of 1307 characters).
