Photographer Friday: Guo Puyuan

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.

Zhou Xun by Guo Puyuan

If this were a movie poster, I would go see the movie.

Wow, wow, wow. The last photoshoot this stunning was the Zhong Chuxi photoshoot, also by photographer Guo Puyuan. I feel like we use playing with light and shadows to describe photoshoots a lot, but this one of Zhou Xun is something special. The lights are dazzling and so is Zhou Xun, and the whole photoshoot feels like it’s for a sci-fi psychological thriller. I’m going to have to go back and look up all of his work.
