'My Things' by Chinese Photographer Hong Hao

  • Posted by Peter Glatzer on May 21, 2014 in Art
  • We think the photography says it all. But here's some background from Hao's gallery:

    Hong Hao is a Contemporary photographer from Beijing. He studied printmaking and created his first major series, a group of prints resembling Chinese maps, executed with a remarkable attention to detail. With My Things, Hong individually scanned hundreds of common objects and arranged them into tightly-spaced compositions. The objects float among black space and appear to viewers as controlled chaos. This series explores Chinese consumer culture, and captures the artist reflecting on his own life of acquisition and materialism. Hong is one of China’s leading Contemporary artists, and his work reflects his careful observational skills and wit.
