Reuben Wu’s surreal world


Reuben Wu is a photographer and musician born in Liverpool, England. In his visual work he is primarily interested in hidden places which he has a subconscious connection with. Usually he travels where there is a sign of humanity in the landscape, for example a trace of history or a forgotten story.

But his ‘Ultima Esperanza’ series is slightly different from that. It shows a popular hiker’s destination in which still was a presence of human intervention. ‘I was particularly engaged with my hike over Grey Glacier where stepping off the land onto a perilous sea of ice was an especially disorientating experience.’ His pictures of his tour seem striking and surreal, almost like shots from another world.
