About Mutual Visual Exposure: Laurent Hou Tells The Tale Of His Shaanxi Series

FeaturedLaurent Hou's Shaanxi Series was shot in “traditional” documentary style, using only ambient light and catching spontaneous moments. The funeral, the series' focal point, took place across several cloudy days, providing the right light for descriptive photography: No strong highlights, no harsh shadows.

Photographer Laurent Hou explains, "People you photograph expose themselves and their way of life to you and your lens, but you too expose yourself to them." It's all about the vice versa of the visual arts.
