“Why can’t we talk about sex in public?”, asks Beijing born and based photographer Ren Hang, who is famous for his nude photos of young people. He is doing it fearlessly in a country where the authorities are threatening to arrest him for his controversial images. Despite people reporting him all the time, Ren Hang’s camera keeps flashing. He captures the harmonious bond between nature and nudity or dirtiness vs. purity both in private and in the public.
Ren Hang doesn’t edit his thoughts. He gets them on spot and perpetuates them on his camera roll. His photos are cherishing our own bodies in their pureness and honesty. They are celebrating our existence worth of valuing in the most natural way. Let the touches of skin and simplicity yet intimacy of Ren Hang’s photographic work talk for itself.
