Kenryou Gu – Utopia
Kenryou Gu portrays the interplay between humans and nature in emotive landscape images. The present series depicts contemporary utopias, with each faithfully recorded aerial view affording a perspective on today’s world, while collectively they do not represent any summative utopia. As part of the KG＋ Award 2018, Gu will exhibit in the main KYOTOGRAPHIE International Photography Festival in 2019.
