Haoran Fan

Haoran Fan (b. 1991, China) lives and works in New York. He recently received a master degree in photography at the School of Visual Arts (New York City). Influenced by multi-disciplinary academic backgrounds (with sociology, advertising, integrated marketing and graphic design), he has been exploring photographic subjects and approaches in a great diversity of directions and stages. His recent practice focuses on exploring the coexistence of natural landscapes and human behaviors. Through reconstructing reality and fiction, Fan creates a new space which states the interaction between objects, human beings and emotions, with peaceful visual language.
