With clients like Apple, Adidas, Converse, Nike, The North Face, The New York Times – and features in Dazed, VICE, Paper Magazine and many more, Shanghai based Photographer, Ka Xiaoxi, is no stranger to the spotlight.
With his 35mm camera in hand, Ka started his career thinking he was going to capture his favourite rock bands performing, but slowly found himself more mesmerised with the Chinese youth culture surrounding the bands. That culture, the Chinese youth, has since inspired Ka’s photographic journey through the last decade.
Ka’s capturing of the Chinese youth has since extended from bands to street culture, fashion and clubbing. The photographs are visceral, often bold snapshots that captures unapologetic moments in time.
It’s a pleasure to welcome Ka Xiaoxi and his work welcome to TOFU Exhibitions.
