Alongside the late Ren Hang, Luo Yang is one of the standard-bearers among the new wave of young Chinese photographers. Flouting censorship, Yang’s work captures a generation of young Chinese women rebelling against traditional expectations.

Yang's latest exhibition focuses on her "Girls" series, which was shot over a 10-year period from 2008 to 2018. Throughout that time, her intimate photos have been exhibited all over the world and earned the praise of Ai Weiwei, who called her one of the “rising stars of Chinese photography.”

Yang started shooting young women as a way of processing her own adolescence experiences. Her subjects, she says, range from friends to people she met online and “represent lives outside the peripheries of society.”

At once vulnerable and bold, Yang’s images form a sort of coming-of-age documentation for both the photographer and her subjects. “I found that the feelings we had and what we were going through were really important,” the photographer explains. “Everything is very precious and it deserves to be shared, and that’s why I want to record it.”

The 10-year retrospective of "Girls" is set to hit multiple cities across Asia. It's currently on show at two exhibition spaces, WOOF PACK and RDX Offsite in Bangkok, Thailand until December 22. Head here for more information.
