Ethereal Nature Photos from Li Hui

  • Posted by SHFT on February 27, 2011 in Art
  • For someone with no formal training who's only been shooting photos for a couple years, Li Hui sure knows how to make a nice picture. The Chinese artist takes expertly-rendered, soft focus photos of her friends in natural settings. They're portraits, but you never see the subjects' faces. She says it's because she's too shy to look them in the face.

    "I think people change their faces too fast in the real world. Sometimes there is no way of knowing their true feelings. But I just wanna know more about what’s going on inside of them and their body language tells me that. Besides, I am a really shy person, so it’s hard for me to focus on someone’s face."

    The resulting pictures are quiet and lonely, evoking the hazy dreams of youth. Beautiful stuff. See more of her work at her online portfolio or Flickr.
