The Man and The Sea
The Man and The Sea
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 lifestyle and 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.
