About the artwork

The photographer and videographer Tristan Zhou has a singular approach to photographing the gigantic buildings, both living and working spaces, that are typical of Asian metropolises, doing so with a unique sense of composition, light and perspective. He makes no secret of the fact that he sometimes uses the artifice of composite images and post-production effects such as for the Monster Building in Hong Kong, whose size is magnified by superimposing two photographs. Ultimately, Tristan Zhou doesn’t deform reality but rather shows us his own.

The artist

Tristan Zhou is the very archetype of the cosmopolitan artist. The photographer and videographer is Japanese by birth but lived in China from the age of eleven. After graduating from the Institute of Visual Art in Shanghai with a BFA in photography, he continued his education in film studies in San Francisco and currently works as a freelancer in Seattle! He is deeply attached to Asia, where he travels regularly, and has begun a photography project on the megalopolises of the continent of his birth. “I particularly appreciate the cultural richness that you find in the majority of Asian cities”, he explains. “Many cities in Asia are densely populated, like Hong Kong, for example, and I am interested in the way that the people built these cities.” Tristan Zhou plays with form, volume and perspective to set out a new vision for urban photography. His photographs, which are always very dynamic, capture the vitality of the Asian continent. He has no compunction about making composite images and, unusually, showing the post-production work he does in Photoshop Lightroom publicly.  ... See more See less

CLAUDE DEGOUTTE

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
