I had the privilege to photograph Li Xiaofeng in his Beijing studio. He also has a Dingdejing studio as well, which I missed him by days at when i was there in February. His work is reconstructing shards of rejected pottery into other forms, my notably dresses and coats. His work is collected world wide. For those in Beijing you might have seen two pieces at The Opposite House. 

我得到授权在李晓峰北京的工作室为他拍摄照片。他在景德镇也有一个工作室,不巧的是我二月在那里的行程和他刚好错开几天。他的作品是将明清汉代残瓷片重新打磨塑形组合起来,演变成其他的形态,最引人瞩目的是礼服和大衣些列。他的作品在世界范围内被广泛收藏。在北京的喻舍酒店您可以找到他的两件作品。

Red Gate Gallery

I have been quite on this website for the past few months, not because I’ve not been working, but because i’ve been working too much on websites. Red Gate’s website to be precise. I started in December to work out the structure and it was finished by mid July and launched. In the artist’s section you will see the various artists i have been to the studios of and photographed. We will be back dating and updating this new over the next while and making (finally) the art pages to this design. redgategallery.com

The brief was to make the photos look British. This is very much a collaboration with the band. 

拍摄的主题风格是英式摇滚。我们和乐队进行了大量的协调合作。

Lv Peng was the first studio I photographed as part of a larger commission from Brian Wallace from Red Gate Gallery. Peng’s themes are have overlap with my concerns. In our conversation we talked about the 1900-30s are a defining moment of Chinese history, the sense of wonder and advancement. This mirrored society in this current period. His paintings have young men discovering the world and getting involved in it.
