Zhang Peng is a Chinese photographer and painter of the most impressive kind. Originally trained in painting, it often occurs that you can’t be sure whether some of his works are paintings or photographs. Well these one are photographs of little girls. The colours, the drama, the tension, the perspective, and the protagonists themselves are so depicted that they surely transcend reality, causing the sensation of a fantastic nightmare.
In his photographs children’s portraits are different from what most would usually expect, no fun, no happiness or hope. The sets are morbid and macabre, distorted and doll-like. Controversial to some, a real genius to others for the concepts and themes brought about in his brilliant work, here are some of his pictures that we love!
