Apex Photography by Yicheng Feng

Home > Winners > #112465


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Apex

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Photography

INSPIRATION:
The presence of these naturally occurring megastructures leads me to reflect on the progression of human civilization, and where nature fits in to our ever-growing societies. As Andrew Warhol once stated, "Land really is the best art." These thoughts subsequently inspired me to capture the rich terrain of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Yunnan, China, with a different approach and perspective to express nature and natural landscape.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
"Apex" is an a fine art photography series reflecting on the entropic nature of organic forms an patterns, a contrast to the rigidity of social structures and routine lifestyles, while being presented in a setting that is pristine and offers a sense of serenity. The forms of the rocks on the mountain forms the perfect juxtaposition between ordered complexity and simplicity, forming a different perspective on natural beauty.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This photograph series aims to establish a 'pure' and 'serene' atmosphere, allowing the viewers to enter a state of meditation, bring them a peace of mind, as well as appreciate the minimalistic aesthetic and gorgeous organic geographical textures that nature presents to us.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in July 2020 in Lijiang, Yunnan Province, China, and was wrapped up in December 2020 in Shanghai, China.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Photography and Photo Manipulation Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This photography series was shot on a Canon 5D Mark III with an EF 135mm f/2 lens. The shots were achieved handheld and has gone through general processing in Adobe Lightroom, with detail retouching done in Adobe Photoshop.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
All images are in a digital format, and are available at 3840*3840px, 300dpi.

TAGS:
Photography, Landscape, Tranquility, Serenity, Meditation, Minimalism

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The scenes were captured at the peak of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Yunnan Province, China. At the altitude of 4280m, the open space offers an experience that is serene, tranquil, and breathtaking. The photography series was created with the notion of utilizing the images as a meditative medium for viewers, primarily as an escape from this age of information overflow as well as this exceptionally stressing time, which many are facing right now around the globe.

CHALLENGE:
At the altitude of over 4000m, breathable air becomes rather thin, and this posed a challenge as it limits the amount of equipment one can carry up to the peak, as well as the amount of oxygen supply. In addition, the climate is rather unpredictable around the time of shooting, which added to the difficulty of getting decent shots. To reduce the load, the photographer opted for just one DSLR camera and two lenses, also making room for more oxygen supply, allowing for a longer shoot time.
