“My generation is really into computer reality,a reality that we can control and perfect in the way we choose...”-Chen Man.
Impossibly sleek, subtly erotic with a touch of the surreal, female Chinese photographer Chen Man’s digitally manipulated c-print photographs, such as "Red Beauty, Wave 2" are simultaneously modern and nostalgic, and have made her one of the highest-paid fine art as well as commercial photographers in China. Chen is most widely known her group of overtly sexual large scale color photographs of stunning Chinese women that belongs to her iconic "Wave Series". This photograph measures 67 x 51.25 inches (170 x 130 cm) is unframed and in excellent condition. From an edition of 7.

Embracing the feel and slick look of American photographer David LaChapelle's works, so too do the super loaded images of Chen Man feel editorial, due largely in part to her formal background in fashion. That acceptance of technological manipulation is common to young people worldwide, and the fact that it is influencing the images of the 'new' Chinese woman is significant and highly visually appealing. Her visual vocabulary may explain why her photographs translate effortlessly from museum exhibitions and collections from China to France, Australia to the United States
