As awkward as it sounds, this new year brought us a sense of nostalgia for an era somehow lost. That’s why we got so impressed with Don Hong-Oai‘s contemporary photographs of China, appeared though as age-old paintings or ink drawings on long scrolls.
Using an old Asian photography technique and incorporating traditional calligraphy and elements of traditional Chinese paintings, Hong-Oai creates mind blowing landscapes, “bringing us back” the essence of past decades.
