Robert Zhao Renhui, World Goldfish Queen, from the series A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World, 2013.

Primarily photographic, Zhao’s practice is drawn from observations and research into the natural world. But it is not direct documentation; instead, he constructs and layers the subject with narratives, interweaving the real and the fictional, sowing a seed of doubt in viewers about the objectivity of the image before them.
