The Motherland Chronicles explores intriguing, dark fantasy of myths and fairytales by bringing them to life through a picture-a-week project. Photographer Zhang Jingna (zemotion) and artist Tobias Kwan combine to form the dynamic duo responsible for the breathtaking pieces that have resulted.
The pictures reveal a complex story that weaves its way through enchanted forests to the bare depths of human emotion. It brings the viewer along on a journey akin to falling down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland, where reality and fantasy clash for domination. The end result of the Motherland Chronicles is that the pictures will possibly be placed into an art book that any fantasy fan would be blessed to own.
Zhang Jingna notes in her personal blog that the will to complete the Motherland Chronicles came from wanting to explore things she had always wanted to do, but had instead put off for a day that never seemed to arrive. How many things have you wanted to do but never got around to it? If the Motherland Chronicles inspires one thing, let it remind you to explore your creativity and branch away from your normal routines.
