Kuoheng Huang’s Photography Creates A Mystifying Version Of Reality

Scroll

Emerging Taiwanese photographer Kuoheng Huang takes ethereal shots of landscapes and objects, using the medium to question our understanding of the appearance of the natural world.

“Everything that is visible might possess a gesture, relationship, peculiarity, or a possibility for imagination, solely for photographs”, explains Huang. At times ambiguous and imbued with a sense of surrealism, Huang’s work constructs new realities by capturing environments that appear beyond our own. The New York-based photographer “strives to see things for their appearance and substance, structure and order, [and] cause and effect; in relation with time and space”, explains his artist statement. Mysterious scenery of cloudy mountains, rocky terrains, and empty roads are interspersed with close-ups of compost and crumpled bed sheets, separating the mundane moments from the more perplexing ones. Images from Huang’s series ‘Scenic Spots, Placelessness’ and ‘Appearance Collector’, a selection of which are featured below, explore the transient and ineffable nature of life—and seek to reveal “the unseen and invisible”.
