In the world of paintings, often we say ”This painting is so good that it looks real” to praise. In the world of photography, often we say “This photo is so good that it looks like a painting” to complement. So what will happen when we photograph a painting that it looks real? I herby walk the miles to find these artworks, shifting my shooting angles, accompanying the shadows, nature elements, artificial objects, to achieve a harmonic synergy and formed a new vision.
The series is to exhibit such complex surrounding our lives. Shooting the paintings is nothing new and , worst of all, running the danger of copying others’ artwork. Thus prior to the shooting, the photographer needs to consider the relations between the paintings and the surrounding environment, and find a way to co-exist them in one frame. It takes good observation on details as well as persistency. It may seem easy but difficult to perfect. The result image looks like a painting but actually not. Somehow it also accomplished the recording nature of photography.
