Chinese photographer Sha Fei's prolific contributions to wartime photojournalism took time to be recognized, as his story ended sadly.

Chinese photographer Sha Fei's prolific contributions to wartime photojournalism took time to be recognized, as his story ended sadly.

While being treated for tuberculosis in 1949, the delusional artist killed a surgeon. He was charged with murder, executed and wiped from China's photographic history. The verdict was repealed decades later and the photos, examined under the light of hindsight, have been admired throughout the country. His images document and sometimes propagandize Chinese life during the second Sino-Japanese War of 1937 to 1945.

The exhibit was at the OSU Urban Arts Space last year, courtesy of curator Eliza Ho. If you missed it, this is your chance to witness black-and-white shots that are heartbreaking and important and a testament to the resilient human spirit during war.
