Luo Yang

Luo Yang (b. 1984, Liaoning, China) currently lives and works in Shanghai, China. She graduated from Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts in Shenyang in 2009. Described as one of the rising stars of Chinese Photography by Ai Weiwei, Luo’s highly-staged portraits, carefully constructed poses, and raw aesthetic defines her work. Luo portrays real Chinese women intimately. Underlying tensions and ambivalent emotions animate Luo’s images, her work reflects on China’s shifting mindset regarding concepts of femininity and identity.

After numerous exhibitions in Asia and abroad, Luo is well-acclaimed internationally and has been featured by ARTE, ZDF Aspekte, Spiegel Online or Le Figaro International. Her monograph GIRLS was published on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of her series in 2018. In the same year, BBC voted her among the 100 most inspiring women worldwide. She received the Jimei x Arles Women Photographer’s Award in 2019.
