Singapore artist ZHAO Renhui brings his five photography works for EDIT: Image Fetish and Phobia in September 2012: Flock of Ocean Munias, The Glacier Study Group -- Expedition#11, Recent Species of The New World -- Variant #12, Heavy Oncela and Siberian Tiger Forest Park. Natural scenery and zoology are the primary subjects ZHAO Renhui represents in his works. Preternatural scenes and fabulous serene atmosphere provoke audiences’ endless conjectures. His work is based on the concept of doubt and uncertainty. By testing the limit and the principles behind the dissemination of knowledge and the acceptance of truths, all the works convey his deep-rooted thinking on image editing.
Recent Species of The New World is a series of images documenting birds that have morphed to adapt to live in new environments such as deserts and reclaimed lands. In most cases, the birds appear to be paler and eyeless, an adaption to cope with life in the glaring desert sand and its sand storms.
