RongRong (China) and inri (Japan) have been working together since 2000. Their works reflect the intimate world that they have created together and push the boundaries of traditional black-and-white darkroom techniques. Their critically acclaimed series of works, such as Mt. Fuji (2001), Liulitun (1996–2003), and Tsumari Story (2012–2014), reflects their shared life and surroundings, delving into the rapidly changing world around them.
In 2007, RongRong&inri established the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in the Beijing Caochangdi Art District.
