Luo Yang, the Chinese photographer that’s been described by Ai Weiwei as one of the photography world’s rising stars, has collaborated with Moonduckling to present a 10-year retrospective of her ongoing project, GIRLS. The multi-city show starts on 10 December in Bangkok, and will run for two weeks before moving to its next location.
Named as one of BBC’s 100 Most Influential Women, Luo’s works are defined by staged portraits, carefully constructed poses, and a raw aesthetic influenced by her earlier exposure to luxury and fashion photography. In GIRLS, Luo photographs real Chinese women that she meets in intimate settings, exploring femininity and its place in contemporary China amongst shifting mindsets. Underlying tensions and ambivalent emotions animate her subjects, lending friction while being intimate and sensitive at the same time.
Produced by Annette Fausboll, Jean Alexandre Luciani, and Julien Favre, GIRLS is as much a personal diary as it is a constant search for answers, and is above all a testament to her subjects’ individuality.
