Billy & Hells
Special Art Request & Photography
The legend says they met in a German countryside disco back in the 80s. Anke Linz and Andreas Oettinger have worked together ever since – sharing 15 different homes and a set of principles for proper picture manufacturing (17 dark rooms and one portable daylight studio for portraits) – under the Billy & Hells pseudonym as painters-photographers would.

Spending his time between New York and Beijing, Quentin Shih represents new school Asian photography. His elegant photographic style has conquered Asian fashion magazines, and he offers a form of Chinese “rigor” to international luxury houses, which he introduces to the archetypes of a national aesthetic tinted with State-enforced formality. In particular, the Dior fashion house has already collaborated with this talented artist, in keeping with its campaign to promote contemporary Chinese artists.
