Portrait Made With 750 Pairs of Socks

Red Hong made this cool portrait using 750 pairs of socks, held together with pins and bamboo sticks. The portrait is of Zhang Yimou, a famous Chinese film director whose movies often reflect the beauty of the Chinese culture through the use of bamboos and traditional costumes.

“When I first moved to Shanghai, I stumbled upon an old residential alleyway and saw bamboo sticks poking out of windows with laundry hanging onto them, waving in the air. I thought that was an incredibly beautiful sight. And the amazing thing is seeing something so traditional in a modern, bustling city like Shanghai.”
