For the first time in Singapore and internationally, we present a milestone photographic exhibition of landscapes from Singapore's celebrated photographer, Russel Wong - with a special feature of works by world-renowned master photographer and icon, the late Ansel Adams (1902 -1984), including a print of Moonrise, which fetched a record price of US$136,000 in Sotheby's New York last year.
[Un]Common Grounds refers to the way landscapes are transformed by the lens of the camera and the imagination, and rendered 'uncommon' or exceptional by a creative photographer. The landscape genre is not just a documenting exercise for scenic views but one that embodies important social, cultural and ideological values of a time and place.
Crossing time and territory, we find common grounds in approach, principles and vision between Adams and Wong, as well as important differing ('un-common') facets. These exhibited works bear testament to the power, presence and poetics of landscape photography that continue to influence practicing photographers today.
