The best multicultural photography: I. Warning: minds will be blown.

It's funny, but I haven't addressed multicultural photography much on this blog. It's about time I rectified that. There is brilliant stuff out there. In fact, the best photography has always been truly multicultural. From Steve McCurry's Afghan girl  to Penn's Chinese food and Salgado's Brazilian miners and Indian ship-graveyard-workers, to the work Richard Picton has done for us and others (his black women boxers will knock you out) to Chen Man's 12-month ode to Chinese beauty for the cover of i-D magazine on the occasion of the Year of the Dragon. Without further ado, here is a sampling of Chen Man's work. More photography posts to follow. I promise. Enjoy, but you might have to send your eyes to detox later. I mean that in a drugs-are-good kind of way. Speaking strictly as a non-user.

Really interesting image that "i-D" magazine has created. I certainly haven't seen anything like this in North America. I wonder how our markets would respond to something similar to this? Hopefully positively!

Multicultural? Hmmm. The concept of the blog as well as content of the blog is as much multi-faceted as any multicultural atmosphere. Really, when cultures collide, there is a burst of colors and emotions. And to capture those in photography, in one frame is more than just clicking. The photographs here are just mind blowing. They are colorful, amazingly shot and highly captures the mind. Sometimes creativity is the best way to get closer to GOD. And as they say creative people are the most closest to GOD. I can now understand, why.

Even though now everyone is a photographer, a true artist's work always stands out.
