About MAN ZHU 

A fine-art photographer based in New York City, Man (Jane) Zhu has received wide recognition for her work, including the Top 50 in Critical Mass 2022 of Photolucida, a book prize from the International Photography Awards and an Editor’s Pick award from LensCulture’s Critics’ Choice Competition. Her photographs have been exhibited throughout the U.S. and Canada as well as in her native China, and have been published in a number of art magazines. Zhu received her MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, and recently completed her Master’s in Digital Photography at New York’s prestigious School of Visual Arts. Her most recent body of work, Unframe | Relationship, applies the principles of semiotics to explore her own subconscious mind, using outdated films to make statements about memory.
