Robert Zhao Renhui works mainly with photography but often adopts a multi-disciplinary approach by presenting images together with documents and objects. His work addresses man’s relationship with nature, and related issues of morality and ethics, paying close attention to how our attitudes and opinions shape our assumptions about the natural world.

He has exhibited worldwide, including the Singapore Biennale, Photoquai (France), International Festival of Photography (Brazil), The Centre of Contemporary Photography (Australia), Noorderlicht Photo Festival (the Netherlands), Format Festival (United Kingdom), and Shanghart (China). His work has also been featured prominently in ‘Artforum International’, ‘ArtAsiaPacific’, ‘European Photography’, ‘Pipeline’, ‘Archivo’, ‘Fotografia’ and ‘Punctum’. He has also undertaken research residencies at Ffotogallery (Cardiff, United Kingdom) and The Kadist Art Foundation (San Francisco, California).
