The journey of the Olympic flame, by FHM

The Chinese edition of FHM magazine is four years old this month, and to celebrate, they have published a 32 page special and outsize pullout poster, titled 'Olympic epic photo spread — the journey of the sacred flame'.

The magazine features four models engaged in combat and sport, with art direction that appears to be inspired by Zhang Yimou historical films.

One of the models is Dai Feifei (戴菲菲), who has a blog. She has posted several of the photos to her blog, and written a short post about the photo shoot, translated below:

Got the photos from FHM 4th Anniversary Photo Special

I was invited to participate in the FHM May issue cover feature which is being published now. Because it's the fourth anniversary of the launch of the magazine, they had really strict requirements for the quality of the content, especially the cover feature. 



We used three whole days to shoot it starting really early every morning and shooting until we were exhausted late at night. Of course such hard work and effort has resulted in this epic set photos with an Olympic theme: The journey of the sacred flame.



I hope everyone sees these photos and feels affected by their spirit of bravery and combat and their power, then all the work will have been worthwhile.

Perhaps the Olympic torch relay would have gone more smoothly if they had used these models to carry the torch.

单位不坏,读者不爱。

They should have used these models for the olympic flame security detail.

FHM的女人都想您

qq women's channel?

If the CCP really want the monks of Lhasa to renounce the Dalai Lama then they should recruit ladies like these to provide the patriotic education.

If CCP recruit these ladies to provide patriotic education, then every Chinese man will want to be a monk.

"If the CCP really want the monks of Lhasa to renounce the Dalai Lama then they should recruit ladies like these to provide the patriotic education." Maybe a group of handsome half nude guys would be better ;)

tacky lad mags? Instead of protesting over Carrefour, why not object to such stupid western stereotypes?

Our culture is pathetic, and they love it. Go figure.

Schmokin' !

---JIA YOU

If western stereotypes look like this, who gives a f*ck? Bring it on!!!!! This country needs more of that and maybe some good football ala the Pittsburgh Steelers. Maybe then there is more to talk about besides only sensitive issues that we are not suppose to talk about.

ugh, america is great but american football - not so much.

"ugh, america is great but american football - not so much."---tom

Are you kidding me?
You don't really want to open debate on the merits of American football vs. soccer or vs. badminton (NOT a sport) do you?
If it weren't for American football there wouldn't be women that looked like this. Without us Steeler fans and our manly physiques these women would have no one to impress. Long story short...get down on your knees and thank God for the NFL.

awesome photos. Do you own the rights to them? I'd like to use them in my blog.
