Remembering Ren Hang

Remembering Ren Hang

Sometimes we don’t realize the impact of visual culture until a brilliant artist’s life is cut short. Contemporary photographer and artist, Ren Hang, has passed away at the age of 29. Known for his controversial portrayals of nudity as well as his mastery of composition, Hang developed a unique voice and vision in his work which balanced a joyful sense of freedom with the natural beauty of his subjects – many of whom were his friends. Here, we feature some works from the artist’s fashion portfolio.
