"To print these unpublished works means that Ren Hang had to show his not so perfect works. It sure was a pressure for a person with a certain degree of stubbornness. In the end we cajoled him into giving us these pictures. The end product is a lively food party with photos being connected using party lingos. The word food has similar pronunciation with foot, which coincides with those feeding action in photos. The whole book seems humorous and nonsensical, which is very close to the Ren Hang whom we know. The idea of this zine was born in the autumn of 2014. Because of the provocativeness of the photos, it was refused many times by printing houses. So we had to replace some pictures and change the design to make it more 'artistic'. Still it was not accepted. In the end we replaced those pages with nude photos with something else, and only then did we finish the printing by the end of February 2015. As for how we replace them, you will understand after reading the zine. The additional tablecloth echoes the theme of Food Issue and also tones down a bit the eroticism. You can use it for wrapping or accessory. It's up to you"
