Biography

Graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing, Chen Man begun her photographie carrer by taking numerous covers for the “Vision”, a leading fashion magazine.

She had already took photos for many fashion magazines at the age of 29. Chen Man is totally an emerging photographer star in the fashion world in China, who is young and intelligent with her own photographic style and mainly produces the photos for women sublimating their beauty. By using the incongruous elements in compostions, she intends to awaken our curiosity. If we analysed the magnificent backgrounds, we could discover the factory fumes, the fish with sparkling scales as the jewellery, a future city where the plants tipped over, and its facades drowned in silky material. The fabulous colours, the smoothness of skin, the highly qualified make-up, a freshness with 3D techniques composed her unique creation.

From a publicity photographer, Chen Man have already became an artist now. She exposes his works at the best museums and galeries in China where she is considered as one of the most potential talents of her generation.
