Sichuan Tales

A KALTBLUT exclusive. “Sichuan Tales” by Solene Ballesta in collaboration with Chinese artist and model Lin Zhengqi. Fashion by Skims. These portraits were taken during a getaway to Chengdu for the New Year, as an escape to a world still recovering from the pandemic.

“Through these images, we sought to inject some poetry into a world undergoing transformation, by creating a fantasy of the past in an uncertain present. I followed Lin through the streets of the old city, capturing his reconnection with his country that he had not been able to visit for years.”
