Ren Hang (1987-2017) published Nude, his third photo book in 2012 after printing it after working hours in a small print shop, avoiding control by authorities, because this kind of erotic publications are illegal in China.
In The Chinese Photobook (by Martin Parr and WassinkLundgren) we can read that Ren Hang’s work ‘functions as a personal universe peopled with friends and similarly minded models, far away from parents, the pressure of marriage, and other responsibilities. In this universe, freedom, the naked body, and sex can all be consumed in large quantities, and one can – at least temporarily – escape everyday realities’.
