Sun Yanchu  孙彦初  was born in  Zhoukou, Henan Province, in China.


Photographer, his first series were about loneliness, intimacy, his obsessions :


Indulge in this ( 2004-2011 )  Color ( 2006 - 2016 )  Obsessed ( 2011 )


Then he started experimenting the image, modifying his own prints and looking for


in flea markets old photos, to give them a new life, a new story, by adding paint to water,


or acrylic paint, gold leaf and even soy sauce, as in his series Ficciones.


Jiazazhi Press published Obsessed  ( 2011 ) and Ficciones  (  2016 ) 



He was one of 10 Chinese artists selected by five curators and exhibitors for the 2017
