The Harmony between Man and Heaven
By their circular form, the photos in LOOKING ON suggest a concentrated focus, especially on small things: birds among branches, a reflection in a window pane, a salamander under water, the extreme tip of a mountain. By focusing one’s gaze this way, that which is far away becomes closer, and that which is small becomes greater. Only then can you feel the soul of things, Hongxun Gao says. For LOOKING ON he made a selection of his best recent work.
Hongxun Gao (China, 1970) works for the publicity department of the Weidong district in the Chinese city Pingdingshan. He is co-chairman of both the Pingdingshan City Photographers Association and the Pingdingshan City Artistic Photography Society. His work has been shown frequently, both in China and elsewhere, and has appeared in periodicals like China Photography and Chinese Photographer.
