Rong Rong

It's really hard to find any clear or official information on Rong Rong but from what I can find he is a contemporary Chinese artist who is one of the founders of the experimental and avant-garde art movements in China. He works mainly with photography, his early work consists mostly of Bejing urban landscapes and decay which then moved more towards naked couples in different natural and beautiful landscapes. Since 2000 he has been working in collaboration with Japanese artist Inri, who I'm pretty sure is also his wife. They create beautiful photographs within which I think they are often featured. They both have incredibly long and dark hair and do not face the camera in most of their photos, which creates a weird twin/double sensation when seeing them model. The photographs are incredibly beautiful and haunting.
