Ma Desheng - Le portrait de Ma
Publication bringing together a series of self-portraits inspired by the expressive vocabulary of the mask. The photographs showcase a multiplicity of feelings contradicted by paradoxical captions.

In the spring of 1979, he participated in the first exhibition of non-official painting organized in Beijing by the artistic group “Stars,” of which he is a founding member.
