Traces – Ian Teh


Ian Teh explores the industrial hinterlands of China’s far-flung and

impoverished provinces with unflinching precision and subtle intensity.

From industrialisation to pollution, these photographic works

present the landscape as a repository for humanity’s endeavors,

somehow a source of memory and a silent testament to our material desires.

In the world’s most populous country Teh has made landscape pictures with

close to no people in sight, letting the terrain speak for itself.
