Huang Yunhe established Shanghai Guangzi Photography Co.,Ltd. in 2003. He established OFOTO Gallery and ANART in 2006 and 2009 respectively.
OFOTO Gallery is one of the fewest and earliest pioneer photography galleries in Shanghai, China. Since September 2006, OFOTO Gallery has collaborated with more than 60 artists and held over 50 exhibitions. The gallery has also invited both locally and internationally renowned professionals to curate exhibitions or host academic discussions. OFOTO strives to discover and cultivate emerging and young photographers who have both potential and individuality in concept and technique. With the aim of supporting these artists, the gallery provides a platform for them to showcase, communicate and develop themselves as a practitioner of the arts.
In December 2009, OFOTO opened a new space, ANART, for a more diversified display of art forms. ANART has collaborated with 20 artists and successfully held 20 exhibitions over the years. ANART has always been unique in its own artistic concept and will always be striving to present diverse, creative and high quality works to the local and international audience.
