    Odds are, you've already seen Chen Man's work. Her high-impact photography has graced covers and editorials across international fashion publications. With one hand in the art world and the other in fashion, this Beijing-born photographer earned her photography and media studio degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts and landed her first photography job in college shooting Chun Xiao in VISION magazine.

    Her photos appear in galleries throughout China and the U.S., as well as in the pages of renowned glossies including Harper's Bazaar China, Vogue China, and recently, an article in American Vogue that features a stunning self portrait of the photographer fixed in front of the Great Wall.

    While her current list of projects is too long to list, Man made some time to fill us in — at least, from afar (she's based in Beijing) — on her past inspirations, current collaborations (include a gorgeous collaboration with MAC called Love and Water), and future aspirations. Let's just say the sky is hardly the limit for this trailblazer. Read on and peep some of our favorite snaps of, and by, Chen Man in the slides.
