Traditional Japanese Portraits With A Modern Fantasy Twist

c1_Upload

Zhang Jinga aka zemotion is a renowned fashion photographer who is working with artist Tobias Kwan on a new artbook called Motherland Chronicles. The book, which will be out next summer, features photographs and paintings in a traditional Japanese style but with very non-traditional subjects.

Jinga is focusing on the things she loves like anime, manga and video games. She’s a huge fan of StarCraft II and even had a semi-pro team that she only just disbanded so she could focus more on her photography. The pair are releasing a new photo and painting each week as a preview of what will be in the book next summer.
