Photographer Yang Yongliang studied traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy with the great master Yang Yang in Shanghai. Today, Yongliang cleverly combines this ancient art with photography and new medias to create both a futuristic and age-old world. His pictures represent the contemporary Shanshui, a style of Chinese painting that depicts scenery or natural landscapes, using a brush and ink rather than more conventional paints. “The Silent Valley”, a solo exhibition of photography and video, opens today at Galerie Paris-Beijing in Paris, France, and runs through April 27th. Yongliang was born in Shanghai, and currently teaches at the Shanghai Institute of Visual Art.

It’s been 15 years since influential artist and photographer Cindy Sherman has had a major, comprehensive exhibit—and luckily fans of her work don’t have much longer to wait. Beginning February 26, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City is presenting a “retrospective survey” of her artwork, which will feature over 180 photographs made from the mid-1970s through the present.
