Motherland Chronicles: The Fascinating Portraits of Women by Zhang Jingna

Zhang Jingna’s photography is remarkable and fascinating. Her photo series titled Motherland Chronicles, depicting the feminine aspect of life, exudes beauty and grace. The women, in classic melancholic pose, are beautifully adorned with flowers and jewels — resembling the fine paintings of the old masters. Truly, the artwork is beyond photographic expression. Simply put… Amazing!

Enjoy these beautiful portraits!
