Sze Tsung Leong
British-Mexican-American, b. 1970
Follow

Using film and developing his prints in a darkroom, Sze Tsung Leong travels the world with his cameras, photographing cities and their outskirts. He approaches his work with a broad view and sensitivity to the pressures that have shaped the built environment throughout time and across cultures. As he states: “Buildings are the result of social forces and political power.” Working in series, he has focused on the horizon line in “Horizons” (begun 2001), emphasizing the distinction between densely inhabited land and open sky, and has entered the interstices of Chinese cities in “History Images” (2002-5), documenting the demolition of ancient dwellings for modern skyscrapers. Together, Leong’s detail-saturated, medium- to large-scale color photographs present an encompassing, interconnected vision of the shifting and varied topography of the entire contemporary world, revealing traces of its past and hints of its future.
