Mo Yi
Street Face No.6 (Tianjin, 1988)

Mo Yi

b. 1958, Tibet, China

Mo Yi delineates the oppression of urban life in China in striking, often eerie visuals. From the late 1980s through the 1990s, Mo Yi encapsulated on photograph the sense of insecurity of Chinese people, as brought on by the country’s political and social changes. His works from this period are among the most important works in Chinese conceptual photography.

Mo currently lives and works in Beijing, China.
