[dropcap type=”1″]P[/dropcap]hotographer Shxpir, pronounced Shakespeare, (whose real name is Sizhe Huang) is considered part of the new creative class rapidly emerging from China.
Shxpir expanded his already large portfolio this month with his “Training Day” spread in Harper’s Bazaar. While it’s definitely worth a look, it got us reminiscing back on his ‘classic’ 2013 Made in China spread –also featured in Harper’s Bazaar.
Here it is again for those who missed the beautifully bizarre work of this very talented photographic artist.
And don’t miss the video. It’s well worth repeated looks and listens. See if you can get the song out of your head.
From Shxpir’s website:
His fine art background gives him a strong foundation in color and composition. While his other great love of modern dance gives him an uncanny ability to pose models.
The collision of these skills mean that Shxpir’s photographs are taken from a unique angle that tell amazing and provocative stories full of color.As a result, China’s leading fashion magazines – including Elle, Femina and Harper’s Bazaar – collaborate with Shxpir when they need ideas for presenting designers’ collections.
Shxpir is presently based in NYC, Shanghai and SydneyClients: Sephora, Material Girl, Elle China, Harper’s Bazaar China, Grazia, U+ Magazine, Femina Magazine, Modern Weekly, Men’s Heath, Fashion Weekly, Vogue China, Lacoste, Dior, Rococo, Ford China, Air New Zealand, Philips Electronics, Nike and Adidas.
