Probably the most well-known celebrity photographer in China, Chen Man is one of nine 2019 Barbie Sheros as a part of Barbie’s 60th anniversary’s nine new Barbies. Last year, actress Guan Xiaotong, ballerina Tan Yuanyuan, and volleyball player Hui Ruoqi got their own barbie dolls.Maybe because she looks like a doll, I think Chen Man’s barbie looks the most like her.
Chris Li and Chen Man open the new year with another awesome collaboration. I love the crazy combination of bright colors, the blush that somehow works with the cartoon Mickey Mouse bag, and bold earrings, and traditional lanterns.
Born and raised in Beijing, Yang Mi, Guan Xiaotong, Xu Jinglei, Xu Qing, and Chen Man rep their city in this latest of hometown-themed photoshoots that seem to be popular in magazines of late.
For more, you can look at NYT Travel’s Anhui series featuring Ma Sichun, Jiang Wenli and Chen Ran , Nanjing series featuring Ni Ni, Hai Qing, Mei Ting and Yang Zishan, and Beijing series featuring Chen Feiyu, Wu Xiubo, and Xu Qing .

Ni Ni is a Ming dynasty warrior in Ninna-ji in this latest set of photos by Chen Man. The actress is currently filming fantasy drama Love and Destiny 宸汐缘 with Chang Chen.
Ni Ni is brilliant in red and gold in this glamorous and modern take on traditional Chinese elements. The photoshoot by Chen Man will appear in both French and Chinese versions of L’Officiel.
Catch more of Ni Ni’s beauty in her currently-airing series, The Rise of Phoenixes.
Chen Man proves she still nails fun, creative photoshoots with this new promo photoshoot for The Meg’s Jason Statham and Li Bingbing. Winston Chao also plays a leading role, while Mai Hongmei and upcoming Mulan-lead Yoson An make appearances. I watched it and thought it was a passable, fun shark movie with some cool shots. Li Bingbing’s English is still pretty lacking but she definitely has a bigger role than most other token Chinese females in co-productions. The movie is out in theaters in the U.S. and Europe on Thursday August 9 and August 30 in Australia.
