As an important means of contemporary historical recording and literary writing, documentary images are an important form of recording Jiangsu's targeted assistance work in ethnic areas, helping people of all ethnic groups to strengthen the sense of Chinese national community. The article takes documentary images of Jiangsu's targeted assistance in ethnic areas as the object of study, and discusses the logic of its mirroring that reinforces the sense of Chinese national community. Targeted assistance work is deeply rooted in the historical process of interaction, communication and integration of various ethnic groups and the construction of ethnic areas, and the sense of Chinese national community presupposes the value foundation for the creation and dissemination of documentary images of targeted assistance, and at the same time, it also confers the important mission of strengthening the sense of Chinese national community. Based on real-life situations, the relevant documentary images illustrate the concepts of national unity, national construction and community building, reflecting the reinforcing effect on the sense of community of the Chinese nation.
