Taken in June 2004 in front of their new Beijing home in Caochangdi, Rong Rong & Inri’s classic family portrait captures the excitement of the first-time parents. This emotion is echoed in a similar photograph taken in 2008 in anticipation of their third child. The photograph was recently exhibited in the artists’ solo exhibition celebrating the one-year anniversary of Three Shadows, a photography center which they founded together. Weaving together their personal lives and their art, the work represents, in the words of Wu Hung, “the birth of new place intertwined with that of human lives.”

Originally appearing as a hand-dyed silver gelatin print, the photograph has been reprinted in limited edition on Hahnemühle rag paper especially for Yishu Journal.
