Friday Fry Up: Xiaoxiao Xu


This Friday we look back at Xiaoxiao Xu’s collaborative book and series Love Doll Factory. In early 2012 Xiaoxiao Xu and fellow photographer Marco van Duijvendijk visited the Ya Mei Plastic Factory in Zhejiang province, China to photograph the pinched pink rubber and the workers who work it. Love doll Factory is a small tribute to the fun that Ya Mei built, it’s coloured in the appropriate hue and wrapped in a “highly enjoyable soft touch cover”, which we take to mean little to no danger of rubber burn. If you so desire, Love Doll Factory can be yours here.
