Guangzhou based fashion photographer Huang Junyuan brings us a very mysterious and solemn series called “Pure”. Although the red and white sets of images are both mysterious and solemn, they each convey a very different tone and mood.

Shen Wei’s Chinese Sentiment series was photographed from 2008 to 2010 in Mainland China. The series is the artist’s personal journey to explore the authentic China, from both public and private perspectives. The series shows a poetic and romantic side of China. Consistent with Shen Wei's sensual and emotional style, the images are loving and keenly felt. Shen Wei’s first monograph, Chinese Sentiment, with an introduction by Peter Hessler, was published by Charles Lane Press (New York) in May, 2011.

Photo report's insight:

Dark Clouds | Photographer: Ian Teh

Dark Clouds | Photographer: Ian Teh | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

A thick layer of grey ash covers the road leading to an industrial site. The air in the city is acrid and dense. Industrial plants and factories loom out of the haze and disappear once more as one travels beyond the city. Further into the mountains there are sounds of explosions as workers use dynamite to extract limestone for the steel plants. In another valley, not too far away, miners go deep into a pit shaft in the early hours of the morning.—Ian Teh

Photo report's insight:

London-based photographer Ian Teh describes Dark Clouds, his project investigating China’s most industrialized cities, as “an exploration of the darker side of the economy’s bright, shiny facade.” Teh follows Chinese workers in the coal industry, giving us a glimpse into the lives of those that are integral in the development of a nation, but are rarely seen or recognized.

China, old and new | Photographer: Stephen Wilkes

China, old and new | Photographer: Stephen Wilkes | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Wilkes traveled all over China, from megalopolises such as Beijing and Shanghai, to more modest cities such as Changsha and Guilin, attempting to capture old China's coexistence with new China.
Along with traditional pastorals, there are long shots of elaborate factories. "China's moving away from being a farming society and putting more weight on manufacturing," Wilkes says. "I'd heard the factories were as big as American football fields."

Jing Daily Interview: Fashion Photographer :Quentin Shih

Jing Daily Interview: Fashion Photographer :Quentin Shih | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Perhaps best known for his controversial 2010 Dior “Shanghai Dreamers” campaign, Tianjin-born, New York and Beijing-based artist Quentin Shih (时 晓凡) is one of the most highly regarded and sought-after Chinese fashion photographers. The self-taught artist, who cut his teeth shooting his hometown’s underground music and art scenes, started his career off in Beijing, then New York, as a fine art photographer, turning increasingly to commercial and fashion work since 2007. Since then, Shih has shot campaigns for brands such as Adidas, Microsoft, Sony and Siemens, as well as spreads for major publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Esquire. Most recently, Shih shot the “Lolita”-inspired lookbook for designer Liu Lu’s brand, Luvon, referenced in February by Hong Huang in her column for WWD, ChinaFile."

Real Toy Story | Photographer: Michael Wolf

Real Toy Story  | Photographer: Michael Wolf | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Covering gallery walls with over 20,000 castaway toys, German photographer Michael Wolf thrusts visitors into the heart of consumerism with his series Real Toy Story. Though Chinese culture has taken the world stage in recent years, Wolf has long called the city of Hong Kong his home, documenting its many multifaceted characteristics and quirks. Real Toy Story dissects China’s production factories with an acute and striking eye, capturing each and every aspect of constructing children’s toys which are shipped and sold to millions across the globe. Here we are able to peek inside the world’s largest inexpensive and mass-produced plastic toy market and meet some of the faces behind the large metal doors.

 

Ever examining the cacophony of populace and urban chaos, Wolf’s installation further highlights the volume of products fabricated and sold daily. His hunt for toys began in Californian flea markets while on vacation in the United States. Only collecting toys ‘Made in China,’ Wolf returned to Hong Kong with thousands of forsaken, used objects. By nestling each factory worker portrait into the jumble of dirty, discarded toys, Real Toy Storyexposes the overwhelming reality of worldwide manufacturing and consumption.

Poagao | Street photographer: TC Lin | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
照相因為太簡單, 所以並不容易...Taking pictures is hard, not because there's so little beauty in the world, but because it's everywhere, in all scales, sizes, shapes and colors, up and down, front and...
Photo report's insight:

I was born on Christmas, more or less raised in the US, and immigrated to Taiwan in 1989. I've been a shoe inspector in Chinese factories, a TV news cameraman, and a conscripted soldier in the Taiwanese army. I write books, make films and play trumpet in a jug band. At present I'm an editor.

Throughout all of this I also take pictures, though I don't go out of my way to shoot any certain thing; my photos are simply things I see. But I would go insane if I didn't have photography to bring me and the world into some kind of understanding.-

Midnight Blue | Photojournalist: Justin Jin

Midnight Blue | Photojournalist: Justin Jin | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
In an old brick warehouse in a Chinese boomtown, workers have thousands of jeans to scrub before dawn. The machines they use — to create the vintage look — send into the air lung-clogging blue dust.
Photo report's insight:

Working more than a decade as an independent photojournalist with leading magazines and newspapers, I specialise in reaching people in hidden, harsh or sensitive situations. Whether tackling themes such as authoritarianism in Russia, exploitation in China or illegal immigration in Europe, I aim to get inside the worlds of the people involved. Through my photography and writing, I want to challenge preconceptions, expose hypocrisy and condemn abuse as much as I celebrate strength and humanity. For the last four years I've been based in Moscow, doing reportage and corporate assignments in Russia, China and beyond. Previously I lived in Amsterdam, working in Western Europe. I speak Russian, Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese, English and Dutch. Some of my projects are commissioned, while others are self-initiated. I apply the same passion, persistence and discipline to both. I also show work in galleries and museums, including the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, which collected a body of my work. In my previous job I worked as a Reuters correspondent, covering China from Beijing and managing a financial reporting bureau in Shenzhen city. Before that, I was at Cambridge University, reading Philosophy and Political Sciences. I was born in Hong Kong in 1974.

Chen Man : Top Chinese Fashion Photographer

Chen Man : Top Chinese Fashion Photographer | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

“It’s Time For The New Generation To Build Its Own Aesthetic & Moral Language”

Since bursting onto the scene in 2003, Beijing native Chen Man (陈曼) has emerged as China’s leading fashion photographer. Having launched her career with Chinese Vision magazine, Central Academy of Fine Arts-trained Chen — known for her stylized, highly saturated and somewhat surreal imagery and otherworldly sense of color — has become one of her country’s most sought-after fashion photographers. In recent years, Chen has made a name for herself shooting celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Faye Wong, Fan Bingbing and Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for the Chinese editions of magazines such as ELLE, Vogue and BAZAAR, as well as campaigns for brands like Shanghai Tang, Absolut, Celine, Shiseido and Coach.

 

This year, Chen’s work has appeared on the cover of i-D magazine’s Chinese New Year issue, and Chen’s collaboration on a makeup collection with the New York-based cosmetic brand M.A.C. was released worldwide this March. Like contemporaries such as Quentin Shih (Jing Daily interview), Chen’s work fits in a unique and nebulous niche, somewhere between fine art and commercial fare, giving it a global appeal to art-lovers and brands alike and, as such, keeping her extremely busy.

Recently, Jing Daily discussed Chen’s conceptions of China’s emerging photography scene, how she sees her place in it, and what she thinks of comparisons to her work with that of Lady Gaga. Interview translated from the original Chinese.
