I first came across Chen Man when I read an article about her in Vogue this year, her own profile picture stood out with the whole cute look she had going on.
Chen Man is a 23 year old photographer from China. From her start in China she has now become a sought after photographer shooting projects for China Vogue, Gucci, Marni, Mercedes Benz and one of her pictures was chosen to represent the Victoria and Albert Museum for an exhibition called ‘China Design Now’ in 2008. Wow – Impressive for such a young lady!
Chen Man works with make up artists a lot with her work and give directions to her shoots giving emphasis to the make up, because of the strength of the visions with the make up, M.A.C (the famous make up company) is now collaborating with the young photographer to have her own limited edition make up collection! Double Wow!
Here are some examples of Chen’s work:
I then accidently came across some more of Man’s work (the first picture) through a friend on FB, (Thnx to Scarlet for the info) I immediately spotted the similarity in the picture to her Vogue profile picture, so I did some more research. Man did some work for one of my favorite English magazine I-D Magazine. She shot a series of covers for a collection called Rise and Shine. The first few were for the magazines..
And then there were other variations for online use which were just as spectacular:
Anyway, I’m sure that we’ll be seeing a lot more of Chen Man along the way, such fabulous shots and visions : )
