Science fiction landscape picture in world of surreal and ethereal beauty, made of endless colors and electric light, by reuben wu - An Uncommon Place

An Uncommon Place A photography project by Reuben Wu

“An Uncommon Place” is an attempt to convey my relationship to landscape and artefact. It is a perpetual search for unfamiliar terrain and an ongoing personal project.”

– Reuben Wu‘s science fiction-inspired landscape pictures introduce us to a world of surreal and ethereal beauty made of endless colors and electric light.

“In my visual work, I am driven not just by the urge to create imagery, but by a desire to explore new places as if they were unknown territory, constantly open to serendipity and with an eye for the unnoticed and the hidden.

Photographs, like music, can create an echo of a time and a place. To me, my images are more than pictures. They are fragments of memory and imagination.”
