"Xi Shitoupo Xiang, Pingyao, Shanxi Province" Photograph by Sze Tsung Leong

$16,280

About

This evocative photograph is part of a series created by artist Sze Tsung Nicolas Leong that explore China’s complicated relationship with its ancient past and anticipated future. In this 2004 photograph, 100-year-old buildings line a vacant street in the old walled city of Pingyao in Shanxi province. Taken with dramatic perspective, the photograph pulls the viewer along the empty street towards a vanishing point obscured by mist, suggesting the ways in which history is cast aside during the country's rapid acceleration towards an unclear future. Framed to the artist’s specifications, the print is signed and labeled as number three of an edition of 10. Winner of the 2018 Rome Prize in visual arts, Los Angeles-based Leong holds degrees from University of California at Berkeley and Harvard universities. His work is included in museum collections all over the world, including the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
