I have always been an admirer of Zhang Jing Na's work, and this is no exception. It's not very often that I am so floored by a photo that I will look at it for so long and enjoy it.

At first glance, you might actually mistake this for a surrealist painting. She looks like a doll, frozen in time with the snow falling softly in the background. I love the eyelashes.

The petals are very McQueen-esque. She's cold, but still alive. The bright red lips make a very strong statement. Absolutely perfect.

I imagine that, for now, she lies dormant in the wintertime. She is waiting for the springtime to blossom into something even more breathtaking.

This is such a serene, yet striking photo--its very impactful in a very quiet way.
It's got an almost dusty feeling, but it looks timeless at the same time.
I love the contrast of colors, but also the fact that they are more subdued. The subtlety of the red lip colour it bold yet not overwhelmingly red, so the work is incredibly soft and hauntingly beautiful.
The model's skin is fantastic and she looks like a porcelain doll, while the frosted eyelashes and white rose petals make it seem like she is frozen.
The styling with the rose petals really reminds me of Alexander McQueen's feather dresses in the Horn of Plenty (F/W 2009-2010)

I can't believe this is a photograph. She's so beautiful, and serene.. I want to believe she's a painting. Such perfection cannot be captured by a camera. But it truly is a photograph. 

I think I'm in love.

A sad and yet hopeful version of Snowwhite with the redness of her lips like blood on snow or petals. It's inspiring like unfinished - the girl who waits... Maybe for spring?
