Zeng Nian

Biography

Translation in progress

Photographer Zeng Nian was born in China in 1954 and moved to France in 1990. He used to study painting and was a sailor for more than ten years. Since a young age of 12, Zeng has been interested in photography and been taking photos with camera borrowed from his friend.

Having inspired by the Chinese painting and printmaking in their horizontal line and panoramic format, Zeng got rid of the traditional photography style and created his unique signature black and white panoramic perspective. With the camera lens, he recorded the culture, history and bold changes in his country.

In his professional career, he has worked with big magazines and foreign newspapers such as New York Times Magazine, Paris Match, Figaro Magazine, The Independent and the French edition of the National Geographic. Gaining a lot of attention in the arts world, Zeng has become a photographer of great distinction in both China and France, with exhibitions in ten different cities over the past two years.
