The minimal and expressive self-portraits of Zezn

18 July 2019

Zezn is a Japanese photographer who captures herself, creating sinuous and engaging shapes with the body. Discover her shots here!

The perfection of the construction of the image is the point of strength of Zezn, a Japanese photographer who has decided to be the subject herself, indeed, the only subject of her shots. The ivory white skin and long flowing black hair lend themselves very well to black and white, a technique that allows Zezn to show all his skill in calibrating, creating and balancing the points of light with those of shadow. 

The Japanese photographer creates intricate and complex shapes playing with the lines of her body that moves freely in space and that we often see entirely, while other times we see only an arm, a few strands of hair or part of the back. 

Looking at her shots I will give you a sudden sense of lightness, suspended in time, like a feather that escapes from resting on the ground.
