Ding Ren was born in China, grew up in the United States,
and is currently based in Amsterdam (NL). Her work has
been exhibited in the United States, the Netherlands,
Germany, the Philippines, China, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Poland,
Portugal, South Korea, and the UK.

Ren is currently Adjunct Associate Professor of Photography
for University of Maryland, University College. She is also the
co-founder of google sheep view and as a result is an avid knitter.

Through a cross-cultural, field driven approach, her analogue
photography seeks to draw viewer's attention to the subtle
details of spaces they already inhabit. By highlighting these
delicate urban details, her photography tells an alternate,
often overlooked story and shifts attention away from the
normalized narrative.
