New Arrival

Until Death Do Us Part focuses on the unexpected role cigarettes play in Chinese weddings. As a token of appreciation, it is customary for the bride to light a cigarette for each and every man invited. The bride and the groom are then invited to play some cigarette-smoking games o f an unprecedented ingenuousness. This publication pays homage to a tradition in which love and death walk hand in hand.

These photos come from the Beijing Silvermine project, an archive of half a million negatives salvaged over the years from a recycling plant on the edge of Beijing.

2nd edition of 2000 copies.  Extraordinary cigarette pack sized photobook.

GIRLS by Luo Yang - Kickstarter

Images of Chinese Femininity: GIRLS (2007-2017) by acclaimed Chinese artist Luo Yang

Luo Yang, born 1984 in Liaoning Province in China's northeast, is a freelance photographer living and working in Beijing & Shanghai. Her portrait-series GIRLS has been exhibited widely in China and Europe.  She has had exhibitions all over China and participated in major shows in Europe, amongst them Ai Weiwei’s “FUCK OFF 2” at the Groninger Museum, Netherlands, in 2013. Solo exhibitions in Berlin and Hong Kong have since contributed to her rising international fame. In her work, highly staged portraits and carefully constructed poses alternate with a raw, blurred snapshot-aesthetic.

MO-Industries is a POP-UP gallery staging cultural exchange between Asia and the West. It is a still young venture that started end of 2015. Luo Yang and MO have been a team since the beginning of 2016, working closely on internationally showcasing Luo Yang's work, while scouting & introducing other exciting artists from China to the West (and vice versa).
