Field of Infinity– New Work by Reuben Wu


photo-eye Gallery Field of Infinity
New Work by Reuben Wu
by Alexandra Jophoto-eye Gallery is excited to release Field of Infinity, a new portfolio of Wu’s work created on a trip to Bolivia earlier this year. The stunning images created around dramatic mountainous rock formations and in highly elevated salt-flats are elegant and clean in their composition, and continue Wu’s signature take on the relationship between light, time, and landscape.

For visual artists, dedication to one’s creative craft is of the utmost importance. In Reuben Wu’s case, that dedication goes above and beyond the norm. The lengths to which he must go to create his stylistically precise, technically complex photographs are often extensive, physically laborious, and time-consuming. Carefully designing and composing images in sketches and prep-work, traveling thousands of miles, scrupulously and ethically scouting remote locations, hauling extensive technology and gear across vast wilderness, dealing with extreme weather conditions, and patiently working long hours to capture each image with his particular long-exposure technique are all important parts of Wu’s process. The resulting images are impressive feats of technology and reveal Wu's commitment to the conceptual framework behind each piece.

photo-eye Gallery is excited to release Field of Infinity, a brand new portfolio of Wu’s work created on a trip to Bolivia earlier this year. The stunning images created around dramatic mountainous rock formations and in highly elevated salt-flats are elegant and clean in their composition, and continue Wu’s signature take on the relationship between light, time, and landscape. Wu recently shared some process images and a video clip from his time working in Bolivia, which reveal the thought, care, and hard work that goes into creating each photograph.
