Guo Puyuan is one of those photographers whose every work feels like they should be on display in a museum. I only discovered him this year but he already has my top three favorite photoshoots of the year (Zhong Chuxi, Zhou Xun, and Ni Ni’s) .

His photos often have trace elements of surrealism, and his unique use of lighting creates a distinct 3D on 2D look to all his subjects.

Previous photographer round-ups: Chen Man’s Chinese steampunk, Luo Yang’s raw femininity, Xiaoming breaking his own boxes , Fan Xin’s people and their surroundings, Zhong Lin’s colorful wonderland, Liu Zongyuan’s impressionism

One thought on “Photographer Friday: Guo Puyuan”

  1. His work is stunning. Love how diverse the colors amongst the photo shoots but still bound by a central lighting theme. The Zhou Xun running one is my fave.
