Photographs of China’s Underground Catholic Church on Display at Loyola
Set of 60 Photographs to Be Displayed in U.S. for First Time

For the first time in the United States, the powerful photographs of the underground Catholic Church in China, taken by photographer Lu Nan, will be on display. Tonight, the School of Communication at Loyola University Chicago will unveil the photographs as part of their newest exhibition. The striking set of 60 photographs document the actions of Catholic Chinese citizens who chose to go underground when the Communist Party of China came into power in 1949.

The preview event will begin tonight at 6 p.m. with a reception and the opportunity to meet documentary photographer Lu Nan himself.

Lu Nan’s work will remain on display in the School of Communication through the end of December, and the exhibition is open to the public and free of charge.

Thursday, September 16
6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
