Biography: Chen Man

Chen Man is a Chinese Photographer, born in Beijing in 1980, who is rightly regarded as the “Star” of Fashion Photography in China.

Still only 28 years old, she has already shot a host of front covers for high profile fashion magazines.

Young and gifted, she has developed her own photographic style, distinguished by its fabulous colours, the silky complexions and exaggerated make-up of her models and her fresh and masterful use of 3D technology all of which make her images unique creations. 

Her work has attracted constant praise from fellow professionals. The fashion world’s leading titles – including Vogue, Elle, Bazaar, Marie-Claire, Cosmoploitan, Officiel, Esquire and Madam Figaro in China – have all been attracted to the instant appeal of her photographs. And Chen Man has been equally successful in shooting publicity campaigns in China – for Lancome, Motorola, Addidas, Nike, Max Factor, and L’Oreal.

Chen Man exhibits her work in the most important museums and galleries in China, where she is seen as one of the most promising talents of her generation. In Spring 2008, she participated in the exhibition “China Design” at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, where one of her images was actually chosen to promote the whole event. 

And last year she also specially designed a screen from her largest photographs for the “Demolition Party” at the Hotel “Royal Monceau” in Paris – an artistic event in which twenty of the modern world’s most outstanding creative talents were participating.
