Join our Adobe-sponsored photowalk with photographer and videographer Tristan Zhou, who plays with form, volume and perspective to set a new vision for lifestyle and urban photography. We will visit some notable local spots and highlight things to consider when photographing your subject, such as how varying your composition can have a dramatic impact and how differences in light can really make your images pop. Tristan will share his unique perspective with the group on this photowalk.
Meet at Adobe Tent at the Entrance to Pier 1
Tristan Zhou is the very archetype of the cosmopolitan artist. The photographer and videographer is Japanese by birth but has lived in China from the age of 11. After graduating from the Institute of Visual Art in Shanghai with a BFA in photography, he continued his education in film studies in San Francisco. He currently works as a freelancer in Seattle.
He is deeply attached to Asia, where he travels regularly. He has begun a photography project on the megalopolises of the continent of his birth. “I particularly appreciate the cultural richness that you find in the majority of Asian cities,” he explains. “Many cities in Asia are densely populated, like Hong Kong, for example, and I am interested in the way that people built these cities.”
Zhou plays with form, volume, and perspective to set out a new vision for lifestyle and urban photography. His photographs, which are always very dynamic, capture the vitality of the Asian continent. He has no compunction about making composite images and, unusually, showing the post-production work he does in Photoshop Lightroom publicly.
“We are too oversaturated with various images and videos. My mission is to create something that is not only eye-catching, but meaningful storytelling.”
