Sze Tsung Leong : Horizons │Text by  Charlotte Cotton , Text by  Duncan Forbes , Text by  Joshua Chuang , Illustrated by Sze Leong


In his new "Horizons" series, the British-American artist Sze Tsung Leong (born 1970) combines wide-angle photographs of landscapes from throughout the world that exhibit fundamental formal similarities and rhythms by connecting them with a common horizon line. Unconventional juxtapositions allow the viewer to transcend distances and boundaries and to leap from the glacial lake of Jökulsárlón in Iceland to the tropical Indian Ocean; from the Israeli separation barrier to the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River; from the suburbs of California to the plains of Kenya. More than ten years in the making, "Horizons" gives an unfurled view of the surface of the globe. Thought-provoking and witty, poignant and playful, the series is above all a cumulative reminder of the complex and perpetually transforming relations between regions, cultures and nations that constitute the planet we live on.
