via It’s Nice That : Chen Man: i-D Covers.

Ms Man has been a top photographer in her native China since her early twenties when she started shooting for Vision magazine. We in the west have been a bit slow on the uptake, but its great to see this gal’s serious talent put front and cenre in this month’s i-D. The magazine, in light of China’s recent Dragon-tastic new year, have snapped her up to produce 12 covers celebrating the diversity of Chinese beauty. In a world rife with glossy spreads its harder than it looks to make a picture stand out — but Man’s flair for high-impact imagery is everything we love about fashion photography; bold, luxurious, and unapologetically beautiful.
