Within Surrounds, our viewers can look forward to a very diverse exhibition of work considering that which surrounds us literally, and from perspectives a bit more nebulous.

Yijia FENG mysteriously examines the concept of identities in her psychologically captivating landscape portraiture, while the photographs of the landmarks in Shanghai, by Xinyu WANG, are a direct representation of man-made surroundings in our modern environment.

There are fresh, unexpected takes on materials, as seen in Yirui WU’s daily documentary works, which push the boundaries of how far photography can go—in this case, using the surrounding constructed objects.

The show also features explorations into photography techniques, exemplified by Jiahui XU’s and Yiqing ZHU’s images, which establish a unique perspective that transcends spatial and temporal constraints.
