"Republic" was the first hardback monograph of work by Ren Hang, the controversial avant-garde photographer from China. A curation of the photographer's most interesting early works presented in an large format clothbound hardcover book.
The book has long since been sold out but we have a very limited number of pristine First Edition copies in our archive that we are now making available to collectors.
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, Ren Hang’s images challenge conventional codes of morality in a still highly conservative society.
