New Love, the first official US monograph by Ren Hang, one of China’s most distinguished emerging photographers. New Love presents Hang’s most recent photographs, taken in February of this year during his first visit to New York City. It is published on the occasion of Hang’s upcoming exhibition “New Love,” to be held June 19 through July 25 at matchbaco gallery in Tokyo, Japan.

Hang’s work in New Love includes casual snap shots taken of friends in parks, cafés, streets, and apartments in Brooklyn and Manhattan, smartly blended with the striking nude photos he is becoming increasingly renowned for. Hang is highly censored by the authorities in China, and the opportunity to work in New York City brought a more relaxed and playful energy to his photographs, and gave his abundant creativity new avenues of expression. As a result, both the diaristic pictures and the stylized nudes in NEW LOVE are imbued with an undeniable sense of discovery and joy, and thrillingly document one of contemporary photography’s most exciting young artists taking bold advantage of the new and unfamiliar.
