INNOVATING ART FORMS
Beijing-born photographer Chen Man made her name on the international fashion photography scene in the early millennium. As well as her inherent creativity, she has been hugely influential in paving the way for Chinese models to go global. Her signature, pared-back style reflects the innovation of the Art Nouveau movement by combining traditional art forms with the latest digital techniques to create harmonious images that delicately and deftly explore vital subjects, with nature as a primary source of inspiration.
CAPTURING 200 YEARS OF TRADITION
In the essential setting of Epernay, Chen Man was invited to capture over 200 years of Maison Perrier-Jouët’s traditions and savoir-faire, which she interprets as “a process of taking wisdom and inspirations from nature”. Inspired by the interplay of light, shadow and colour, her original compositions invite the viewer on a unique voyage into the heart of the Perrier-Jouët vineyards and cellars of the Maison Belle Epoque. This singular, contemporary vision re-enchanted guests of EDEN Shanghai, where the series was revealed in 2019.
