Join us for the Reception for Edges of Savannah by SCAD Photography MFA candidate Yao Wang on Friday, May 10th from 6 – 9PM. As a Chinese artist who has lived in the United States for seven years, this body of work reflects Wang’s visual impressions of the borders of the city of Savannah from a hybrid perspective that reveals the socio-economic landscape through the lens of cross-cultural interpretation.
Wang’s photographic work focuses on the urban landscape and social culture in the Southern United States. About his work, he says, “photography as an art form is one of the most effective ways to communicate and educate, because photographs are inherently realistic visual documents that can reflect both truthful information and the ideas and attitudes of the photographer.” Edges of Savannah is comprised of three parts that include documentation of neighborhoods at the margins of the city, the industrialized landscape, and night photography. Collectively these images translate moments of transition between city and suburb, residential areas and industrial places, and day and night.
Edges of Savannah is on display from May 9th – 11th and may be seen during Sulfur Studios’ regular business hours, Thursday – Saturday from noon – 5PM or by appointment.
