Leslie Zhang’s Stylistic Portraits Of Chinese Beauty

Words

Shanghai-based photographer Leslie Zhang’s work encompasses striking portraits with bold colors, atmospheric documentary shots and stylized fashion commissions. His feeling for composition and use of bright primary colors portrays the artist’s penchant for his own Chinese nostalgia.

Being given opportunities to work in fashion meant that at first, Zhang’s work was about what was contemporary. However, as time has progressed, the photographer goes more with feeling than fashion: “More and more so I’ve realized the things I have the deepest emotional connection to and find most beautiful, are the sentiments from my memories of growing up in China”, the artist explained in an interview. “I now try to recreate these ambiances and moods in the images I create”, he muses. “It’s all about portraying and celebrating the little romances in our daily life”.
