Another Indigo brother found through Juxtapoz website, Maleonn is an amazing photographer with an even more amazing story.
Maleonn’s story is one that is enshrined by infirmity. His father was Shanghai’s leading opera director at the time of his family’s banishment to a re-education camp during China’s Cultural Revolution. This single event not only resulted in a hard-scrabble childhood for Maleonn, who was conceived in the camp, but it also helped shape his sociopolitical views as an adult.
From this early life of hardship and constrained opportunity, Maleonn has emerged as a major cultural figure in 21st Century Shanghai.
