Tiantian An can pose up to three times a second. She’s so fast, it almost looks like she’s under a strobe light or performing a mesmerising, slow-motion dance.
The clothes she models are sold on Taobao, a Chinese e-commerce site visited by more than 600 million people each month.
Taobao models like An are paid by the outfit. With a series of rapid-fire poses, they can change into hundreds of different outfits in a day – a lucrative exercise for those who can work quickly.
