Photographs of The Yellow River by Zhang Kechun

Chinese artist and photographer Zhang Kechun has created a beautiful series of photographs taken along the banks of China’s Yellow River. Part surreal – part mysterious yet always stunning; Kechun’s photographs have an other-worldly feel to them. Yet despite the majestic nature of these scenes Kechun’s images also have a darker side to them too. They highlight the frail realitiy of life along the banks, showing the devastating effects that floods and droughts can bring to the area. They’re images that tell of the struggle that exists when man and nature attempt to co-exist together in one place.

Kechun’s series of photographs is a collection of forty spectacular images so make sure to take a look at the complete series on his website here.
