Ren Hang

Republic - Special Edition


The first hardback monograph from Ren Hang, the controversial avant-garde photographer from China. A curation of the photographer's most interesting and often provocative early work presented in an extra large format clothbound hardcover book. 

Originally from Chang Chun in the Jilin province of Northeastern China, Ren Hang (1987-2017) was a poet and photographer living and working in Beijing. Deliberately provocative, Ren Hang’s images challenged conventional codes of morality in a still highly conservative society. 

The explicit nature of Ren Hang’s photography often made it difficult for galleries in his homeland to mount exhibitions of his work. Despite this, his images have been exhibited widely; with several solo shows in China and internationally in countries including USA, Germany, Japan, Italy, France, Russia, Israel and Sweden. 

This Special Edition comprises of two editions of 15. Each set comprising a numbered First Edition book (numbers 11-40/40) housed in an embossed cloth covered clamshell presentation case together with one of two high quality prints on Canson Platina 310gsm paper. Please note that book and print unsigned. First Edition numbers will be sold in the order in which they are purchased (from lowest to highest number).
