Chinese Photographers

Liu Zheng, Four Beauties 2004 - Xi Shi

If you click on the photograph above you will see some extraordinary photographs by Liu Zheng. Fables and stories from China are depicted using the style, lighting and subdued color pallete of European renaissance art. I don't know a lot about the artist and even less of Chinese mythology, so I can't guess if the scenes are contemporary - created by Liu Zheng, or traditional. I'll do some research and let you know.

Also, when you get to the gallery, have a look at the other works, including "The Chinese" a work that occupied the artist for 7 years.

  1. "The Chinese" gallery is beautiful and feels much older than the actual photo dates. I especially like the old entertainers and the boy next to the motorcycle. Seven years? Do you have a photography project, or the dream of one, that would occupy so much time?
