Abstract
Pictorialism as a photography branch which achieves aesthetic conception through documentary mode, its essence has a link with Chinese calligraphy and painting, and they all are Oriental arts with typical Oriental aesthetic. And artistic conception is the highest level of oriental aesthetics, also is a perfect form of expression for pictorialism to pursue. Although pictorialism relies on documentary way to innovate, but it is carrying Chinese culture and national connotation, the aesthetic category it contained reflects the aesthetic form of the work. This article uses "shape and spirit", "dynamic and static", "reality and fantasy, "light and shadow" to render the artistic conception in pictorialism, and to explain the connotation and formal beauty of oriental culture as well as its symbolic meaning.
