Self-portrait by Luo Yang

Luo Yang

Born in the 1980s, Liaoning, China. 

Lives and works in Beijing and Shanghai, China.

As a photographer, Luo Yang has been placing her focus on women from different generations and backgrounds in contemporary China. In 2012, Ai Weiwei pronounced her one of the “rising stars of Chinese photography”. Soon after, she participated in his show FUCK OFF 2 (2013) at the Groninger Museum, The Netherlands, where Ai – in a sequel to his radical FUCK OFF exhibition in Shanghai (2000) – brought together a handpicked range of up-and-coming Chinese artists. Solo shows in Berlin, Hong Kong and Bangkok have since contributed to her international recognition and she’s been widely covered by Western media.
