“Shan Shui” by Photographers Sébastien Tixier & Raphaël Bourelly

A stunning new series by French photographers Sébastien Tixier and Raphaël Bourelly. Taking its name from a style of painting that pays tribute to the path of mountains and water (immobility and motion), “Shan Shui” offers two perspectives on the same territory.

As Tixier and Bourelly observe, while China’s growth has skyrocketed over the last thirty years, such abrupt and accelerated change also means an increased demand on natural resources — a shift that can’t help but run up against the Toaist philosophy of non-intervention and harmony with nature. See more images from the project below or on display at Le 247 gallery in Paris starting May 3rd.
