Malaysian-born, Taipei-based photographer Zhong Lin (pinyin: Zhong Ling) is really one of my favorites. I love her whimsical style and bold use of colors that seem to bring fairytale settings to life. Her subjects always feel so filled with life, and each frame tells a story. Here’s a round-up of some of my favorite celebrity photoshoots by her.
Actor-singer-host Wang Yibo in a really cool photoshoot by the talented Zhong Ling. I love how this photoshoot combines bold orange and metallic colors with elements of mountains inspired by traditional shanshui paintings and Chinese gardens.
The women of sci-fi film Gone with the Light 被光抓走的人 are captivating under light and shadows in this photoshoot by Zhong Ling. The film follows a post-apocalyptic event where only people without love are left on Earth. It stars Wang Luodan, Chen Wenqi, Tan Zhuo, and Huang Bo and is set for a December 13th release.
Enter a fragile wonderland with Ni Ni in this photoshoot by Zhong Ling. The Love and Destiny actress has recently debuted a character in a new stage play, went on a weeklong charity hike with Chen Kun, and will hopefully soon begin filming again.
Coming-of-age story about “a schoolgirl’s rite of passage as a rookie smuggler”, The Crossing 过春天 will be screening in the usual overseas spots this week.
The directorial debut of Bai Xue is the produced by veteran director Tian Zhuanzhuang. I don’t know what it is, but the trailer looks very different from all the other Chinese films. It reminds me a bit of the best Thai coming-of-age films. Newcomers Huang Yao, Sun Yang join Carmen Soup to star in the film.
