Note: Contains nudity.
Just like Robert Mapplethorpe and Terry Richardson, Ren Hang is not afraid to photograph vaginas, erected penises and other body parts that naturally form the human body. People are born into this world naked and that’s exactly how they’ll be captured in his snapshots. He doesn’t pre-plan any of the scenes prior to the shoot, it just occurs in real time; for example a model may be urinating out of necessity and he just takes the shot. But with the amount of nudity on display, his work is expressly forbidden in galleries in his native China.
