Photographs by Zhang Xiao

Photography // Thursday, January 23, 2014
Chinese photographer Zhang Xiao studied Architecture at University and it wasn't until he found an old camera that he discovered his desire to pursue the craft as a career and hobby. While working for the Chongqing Morning Post, Xiao would bring two cameras, one for work and one for his personal photos. Eventually the monotony of the work and job led him to quit and is currently working as a freelance photographer. He has since produced several wonderful projects documenting Chinese culture undergoing societal changes.
