The inspirations of photographs originate from classical Chinese philosophy. I try to utilize the way of abstraction to fusing cultural principles from China and the West to demonstrate my concept of Harmony. The photograms I’m creating have variable perceptions underlying the individual’s experiences. There is no tangible subject in my photographs. The “Image” is the essence of the light. For another, the light is not only the unique element in my photographs, but also the indispensable element of photography.

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.
