Yan Yufeng: Boy Comfort Zoom

Artist Yan Yufeng

Words Christain Ruess

We’re in love with the work of Yan Yufeng. Born and raised in Chengdu, China, Yan is a visual artist and photographer based in Milan and Shanghai. In his ongoing long-term project Boy Comfort Zoom, observing and exploring modern masculinity, he portraits boys and men from all over the world in places familiar to them – the models themselves pick the location for the shoot. The resulting pictures have an air of relaxation and a snapshot aesthetic about them that gives a glimpse into the models personal backgrounds.
