The Truths

  • Photographer
    Zhou Peng

How many times have I asked myself if what I see and hear is the truth? Too many thoughts, emotions, and stories congest the mind. We fail to identify a direction and become lost on the way to the right track. Our vision is foggy, and the answers hold diversified opinions, and there is much to be said on both sides. However, have we thought about whether these differing opinions can reflect upon definite truths? Who can offer us a firm answer? Do we even need an answer? Somewhat I feel I don’t need an answer because the truths will bestow their answers to me.

Zhou Peng was born and raised in Shanghai. He trained as an oil painter in his early age, and he turned to commercial photography after graduating from Shanghai Theater Academy. Meanwhile, Peng had been keeping the passion for art photography. He is studying in major of M.F.A photography at Savannah College of Art and Design. Peng’s central inspiration came from Chinese philosophy, and his photos also combined with Western painting and Chinese classic aesthetic notions. He is exploring in search of new ways of thinking and making art by fusing multiple concepts into semi-abstract photo series.
