From the publisher:

“The only international collection of Beijing photographer Ren Hang, whose images garnered some 90 shows in his brief six-year career, as well as a mass following online. Vivid and explicit, Hang’s images capture naked subjects outdoors, exposed, erect, and in an entanglement of bodies that put him at the forefront of a gender fluid world and of Chinese artists’ battle for creative freedom.

"TASCHEN’s Ren Hang is his only international collection, covering his entire career, with well-loved favorites and many never-before-seen photos of men, women, Beijing, and those many, many erections. We take solace remembering Ren’s joy when he first held the book, shared by his long-time partner Jiaqi, featured on the cover.”

Hang’s images, all produced on film, have been seen as controversial to the public in his homeland. However in a comment made in the New York Times, the artist disagreed, stating, “I don’t really view my work as taboo, because I don’t think so much in cultural context, or political context. I don’t intentionally push boundaries, I just do what I do”.
