Gone – Zhang Jingna

So I’ve recently joined deviantArt and one of the artists I am following is  a 21 year old Chinese photographer named Zhang Jingna. She has shot for Mercedes Benz, Ogilvy and Mather and Harper’s Bazaar. Not only this but she won a bronze medal in the 10m air rifle event at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games. Respect!

I’m sure I will post more of her wonderful images, but I wanted to start with this one because it’s a beautifully striking portrait. The image makes me think of Cosette from Le Miserable. I think the thing that engages me most is the expression- it’s vacant at first glance, but it’s so intense that you know there has to be more. The models eyes are hooded and her mouth betrays no emotion.
