Photography Inspiration: Mang Mang

There are times I need to see to something quirky to get me through a uninspiring day —well technically its not that the day is uninspiring but maybe I'm just depressed or I'm having this bad case of  hunger to create something.

One of my favorite quirky photographers is Mang Mang. She a gorgeous Shanghai based photographer who does this quirky and fun self-portraits of herself, exploring with different themes from feminine emotions to traveling through the dreamscape using a old luggage bag. She is trained to be an actress but instead of being one she just opened her photography and painting studio and started her fun and quirky series. Mang Mang does everything by herself from being the photographer to being the one designing the set.

Yep this is Mang Mang and so is every person in the next photographs.
