It’s part of our jobs to look at pieces of art and shoehorn it into a category such as photography, art, illustration…you get the idea. The thing is with Yang Yongliang’s futuristic portraits of fictitious landscapes is that they’re labelled photography but are they? He says so. By digitally assembling a large amount of collected photographs of cities at night, Yang has actually created pretty mind-blowing images reminiscent of a futuristic world where all the cities and mountains on earth combine to make an enormous, buzzing, meta-city.
