His work was recently included in the group exhibitions Phantoms in the Dirt (2014) at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Columbia College, Chicago, and Queens International 2013 at Queens Museum, New York, and he had a solo exhibition at Brennan & Griffin, New York, also in 2013. Additionally, Ou’s writing has been featured in several publications including Aperture, Artforum, and X-TRA. Based in New York City, Ou is the director of BFA Photography at Parsons the New School for Design, where he also serves as Assistant Professor of Photography.
