Mr. Jiongxin Peng, PPSA, AFAPA, FPSNY is focused here on black and white photography. Of course, color photography can be wonderful, and we enjoy looking at color images, but – we see in color, and do not wish constantly to create images as we already see them.
Well, the photography for Jiongxin is Zen in the very sense of that word. It has become a part of his nature.
All about his black & white images is outstanding – the scenery he chooses, the way he’s focusing the subject, every detail is brought to perfection.
What is the main impression when we look at Jiongxin’s photos? We will keep it simple and say: silence
The beautiful silence, the silence of solitude, the solitude of silence. There is a curious silence that resides in the folds of noise that surrounds us. One cannot, of course, hear it. But Jingoxin manages to feel and photograph it, making it possible for the rest of us to even see it.
We believe that Jiongxin is the one who is moved emotionally (and even spiritually) by photography. We live in a world of over-saturated by imagery. Billions of photographs are brought into existence every day. It is utterly and entirely overwhelming. Sometimes, one encounters an image that clutches at the throat and makes the heartbeat a little faster.
