Currently work and live in Shanghai.
“BIRDHEAD” was formed in 2004, and their oeuvre consists mainly ofsnap-shots captured of daily life in their native city, Shanghai. They have, over time, shot a large number of photographs, in black and white as well as color, most of which are realistic portraits of the modern metropolis imbued with their distinctive subjectivity and attitude. Through their everyday experience of life in Shanghai as well as the relationship between the self and the city, their works reveal Shanghai’s rapid development and transformation as the artists live it.
