The Magical Mystery that is Ren Hang (NSFW)

Erotica // Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Chinese photographer Ren Hang is a bit of a mystery, Not because there isn't a look of work and books out with the work, and we have covered Ren multiple times over the years, but because you get the feeling that there is something revolutionary happening in the works.
