“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 capturingenvironments 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”.
