The photography of Ren Hang……So let´s us ask again who is Ren Hang?
Someone that has challenged notions of Chinese sexuality with provocative photography, many of which are considered pornographic in China and some even deemed worthy of criminal offence.
Though his photography work is controversial, often dealing with subjects such as nudity, gender and homosexuality, his work yields no political context, and yet the Chinese government still hold him to the same kind of rules that Ai Weiwei and Cheng Li have been subjected to.
Ren comes from Beijing, which is also home to his contemporary, the political artist Ai Weiwei.
The people in his photography were “mostly friends.” Just hanging aroung having fun naked, instead of shooting photos of strangers that leaves him nervous, his friends trust him so it makes him more relaxed.
