I first saw some of his work at an exhibit of contemporary Chinese art, about a month ago, at one my favorite places to see contemporary art in Chicago, the Chicago Cultural Center. (It may not seem like it but they usually have some pretty amazing art there and it’s all free!)
I’ve said it before, but I love to have something performative in all my art no matter what the form. I find these photographs fascinating. Especially the ones where there is interaction with others and I love the foreground/background interaction that relationship creates.
I enjoy these purely from a formal perspective but his intent is quite a bit deeper. Read his statement and check out more images here: Galeries Bertin-Toublanc.
(I recently saw a post about him on the donut project, so also via them)
