Inspired by the culture and traditions of his country, Paris-based Chinese photographer Kiki Xue created this marvelous series titled “Beyond Tradition”, which also highlights the traditional clothes and emotional expressions.
In his works, he aims to express himself and to convey his appreciation of beautiful, imperfect objects and people through a variety of cultural forms. He does not conceal flaws and destructed details that to his belief are an inherent part of beauty. His detailed and thought-out designs and compositions encourage the viewer to stop and observe the work, which then echoes as an internal reaction in the observer. Xue observes the effect of natural light and works with it to illuminate his works. Working with both digital and film cameras, Kiki Xue explores many different realms; the human body, still life, portraiture, and fashion; creating profound detailed images, full of textures, emotion, and vibrant colors.Kiki Xue
