We’re not sure when we’ve seen such beauty of muted self-portraits lately. Now that the prefix SELF has gained a whole new perspective, this kind of work gains an unexpected momentum though the idea is to shy away from eye-contact by exposing her body as a medium of expressing movement and emotion.
Ziqian Lu, based in Shanghai, describes her work as a way to communicate with herself and getting to know herself better. Her imagery can be considered as a visual diary in the form of photography.
The two main themes in her work observe the symbiosis between human beings and nature, and perspective, a theme that invites to look at familiar objects from different angles. You can discover her extensive work on her site and through a stunning IG feed, also, there is a fair chance you’ll fall for any of her available prints.
