Working primarily in fashion editorial, the photographer captures sultry and evocative scenes through a cinematic lens. Accentuating deep and silky colours, Zhong’s latest photographic series titled _#bighairdontlie_ explores the concept of bullying – but a “more optimistic path rather than the negative side of it”, Zhong tells It’s Nice That.

Photographer Nick Ballon's series is a portrait of Bolivia’s second largest city and its people | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Anglo-Bolivian photographer Nick Ballon describes his heritage as the “backbone to [his] photographic practice as an artist”. One ongoing project, for example, explores the possible implications of a country’s relationship to the coast, and the effects it can have on its population; Bolivia is a landlocked country whereas life in the UK means being within a 70-mile radius of the sea at all times. In Nick’s latest series "Ciudad Rebelde" however, the photographer turns his lens on life in the Bolivian city of El Alto.
