Shao Yinong & Mu Chen: Childhood Mementos in China

I adore this photographic series called ‘Childhood Memento’ by Chinese husband and wife team Shao Yinong and Mu Chen.  The colors are dazzling, and I like the simplicity of the model’s pose against the vivid background in each image:

One thought on “Shao Yinong & Mu Chen: Childhood Mementos in China

  1. It occurred to me that what truly enhances the innocent beauty of the top picture here is that her clothes are lying on the ground right next to her. It makes it look as if she just took them off a moment ago and is about to jump into that lake for a skinny-dip.
