'The first hardback monograph on the work of Ren Hang, the controversial photographer from China. A collection of the photographer's most interesting work to date, presented in a large-format, clothbound hardcover book. This first edition is limited to just 460 numbered copies.
Originally from Chang Chun in the Jilin province of Northeastern China, Ren Hang (b.1987) is a poet and photographer living and working in Beijing. Deliberately provocative, his images challenge conventional codes of morality in what is still a highly conservative society. The artist’s work has appeared in leading independent magazines in China and around the world, although its explicit nature has often made it difficult for galleries in China itself to mount exhibitions of his work. Nevertheless, he has had exhibitions in his homeland, and has also shown widely in countries including Italy, France, Russia, Israel and Sweden.' (adapted from a text by Session Press).
