We talked about a lot of provocative and controversial photographers but not Ren Hang. After the latest news we want to pay homage to his career and works, on one hand because he was “one of the leading lights of the new generation of Chinese photographers” (fighting censorship) and on the other hand because of his strength and passion. Ren Hang had been arrested many times for his sexually explicit, joyously celebratory photography. He was repeatedly denied the chance to exhibit his work in Beijing and China.
Here some of his most provocative shots
Rest in Peace
