Publisher's Description

Now in its second printing.

This catalogue was produced on the occasion of Reuben Wu’s exhibition at photo-eye Gallery from August 30 through November 16, 2019.

Simultaneously reminiscent of the slick, neon glow of sci-fi aesthetics and the cryptic symbolic language of ancient petroglyphs, Reuben Wu’s work is clean, yet mysterious. His photography hovers somewhere between the mythic and the surreal, between dream and memory, with an undulating sense of temporality slipping between the ancient past and the imagined future. Light and land are entwined equally at the center of Wu’s practice. By affixing lights to drones and using them to illuminate select parts of the landscapes he photographs, Wu draws precise geometric marks that hover in the air like beacons, harbingers, and signs. His work is concise, yet versatile in concept, offering new ways to approach the human relationship to nature, technology, and the overlay between past, present, and future.

Reuben Wu is a British photographer, born in 1975 in Liverpool, and co-founder of the popular electronic band Ladytron. His work has been featured in National Geographic Magazine, Wired Magazine, Time Magazine and in Photo District News’ print and on- line publication. He was the recipient of the 2018 Graphis Award (Automotive Category) and his series Lux Noctis was a winning entry in the 2017 PDN Photo Annual. photo-eye Gallery debuted their representation of Wu’s work earlier this year at Photo LA and in a solo exhibition booth at AIPAD - The Photography Show, New York.
