i saw this photo by Wang Yi Fei on Flakphoto and thought it was compelling. there's something a bit retro about the color saturation, the background, and the model's slicked-down hair. it could almost be a passport photo or a commercial/editorial assignment, but then the black eye troubles the scene. (there's also something a bit cinematic about it, which makes sense because it looks like Wang Yi Fei has won an award for film Art Direction?)
the photo is featured in the book 3030: New Photography in China. i'd like to know more about Wang Yi Fei, but Google in Chinese is beyond my ken.
