By researching in the narration of photography and unveiling hidden histories, he frames most of his works through photography, essay films, and institutional research.

His work is a set of a visual experience of a metaphorical method through personal narratives. Through the research of archaeology and anthropology, history, and other disciplines, he examines and builds a poetic visual language with its thoughts. Beichen Zhang has exhibited widely, including the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre (Beijing), 34th Image Forum Festival (Tokyo), Sunny Art Centre (London), and the New York Art Center (New York). And now he lives and works in New York City.
