Eye Candy : The Photography of Sun Jun

Sun Jun (孙郡) is an acclaimed Chinese photographer who is probably best known for his unique aesthetic that fuses modern fashion photography with traditional Chinese landscape painting elements. The results are striking compositions that possess a timeless and dreamy vintage quality. A graduate of the Art Academy of China, Sun Jun actually began learning the art of Chinese painting at the age of 7. His captivating work can be found in numerous fashion editorials and celebrity pictorials. I've compiled some of my favorites from the latter category here. What do you think of this photography style?

So beautiful! Reminded me of the old Chinese gravures and certain furniture (I am not good at it, so not sure what era or style those pieces were, but I just remember how much I loved the pieces and screens!) x

That is a great way to combine both fashion and Chinese traditions! I like all of the photos, maybe the photos with the flowers caught my eye the most. He would be an interesting photographer to follow. Thanks for letting me know about his work, Rowena! xo

Just breath-taking. I've never seen his work before. I love the vintage feel. Thanks for sharing, Rowena:)


There's something so remarkable about the interpretation and merging of both contemporary and ancient aesthetics. I just adore the last image, and his tone and the placement is marvellous.

He must be an amazing painter as well, but he sure is a phenomenal photography. I think I can see his background in painting...these images are so dreamy and utterly beautiful. It is like he created a bridge between photography and painting! His style is truly unique, I must admit that I haven't seen something like it before. I'm mesmerized! Thank you for sharing.
