Traveling around the world, those various shapes architectures and sculptures attract our sights. These landscapes may represent a city, a souvenir, a war or a disaster. They’ve been defined and diffused by what we ourselves made of them and they’ve became the external form of the human thoughts. Photographer Jin Ting focus on the language conveyed by subjects themselves and try to restore the pure features of subjects using infrared photography to attain the unitary and unconventionality of colors and to lead viewer’s independent thinking separating from conventional context.
Photographer Jin Ting has invested 4 years on photographing world’s famous architecture. He connected with those landscape from a calmly outsider’s view. He prevented light within wavelengths to get into his lens by using infrared photography so that the light and shade and colors would be different in the image from what we saw. Meanwhile, he enables the presenting of subjects to keep a viewing pattern similar to our eyes getting rid of odd angle and distinctive composition and records those symbolized buildings by a nearly “copying” way. Lapsed center of interest and undifferentiated landscapes made the subject seems like an actor without any expression standing at the center of the stage. Expecting from the irregular color, the image becomes uninteresting, the world seems to be deeply suspicious, and we seem to see the photographer's on-looking eyes.
Those works have been exhibited in Jin ting’s solo exhibition, Symbols, during Photo Beijing 2017 from 12, Oct to 22, Oct. There are over 19 pieces of photograph have been showed in the exhibition. Processed with Inkjet print and professional mounting and framing. Presented with exhibition-quality prints.
