THE WILD PLACE
Tugo Cheng captures Xinjiang’s Tianshan mountains
HONG KONG PHOTOGRAPHER
Tugo Cheng spent a decade crossing the border for his series Discovering
China. Cheng, who has a background in architecture, says he focuses on capturing unusual shapes, patterns and textures, often resulting in abstract, poetic compositions – shapes like these surreal canyons, hundreds of metres deep, carved out by a river in the Tianshan mountains of China’s northwest Xinjiang region. Shooting while the light was weak helped Cheng create the flattened look, like a painted canvas.
香港攝影師鄭振揚花了十年時間，前往中國各地攝影，然後組成發「 現中國」攝影。系列 鄭振揚有建築的背景，他表示喜歡捕捉一些不尋常的形狀、花紋和質感，令作品的構圖既抽象又富詩意。圖中所見的峽谷，於位 中國西北部新疆的天山，河由流侵而蝕 形成，有數百米深。鄭振揚在光線弱時拍攝，令景色看來扁平，有如畫布上的圖畫。
