Anyone who’s ever picked up shells on a beach knows how easily found objects can make their way into our homes…. But Chinese artist Hong Hao takes this to another level, with his highly detailed photographic artworks that focus on the ephemera and belongings in his life.

If you’re lucky enough to be in Beijing over the next few weeks you can catch a exhibition of Hong Hao’s most recent work at the Pace Gallery (From 16 March to April 27), including my favourite, above: As It Is – The Writings of a Hundred (pencil on found paper 2011)
