This Weekend – 'A Different Journey' with Russel Wong

Walk ‘A Different Journey’ with photographer Russel Wong this coming weekend from 6 November to 29 November.

Best known for his celebrity portraits and as the photographer to the stars, this exhibition-sale will instead show a very different side to Russel’s eye, sensitivity and unique imagination.

In this new exhibition, there will be no portraits of Jackie Chan, no Aishwarya Rai and not even his muse, Joan Chen. Instead, expect to see early morning views of Huangshan or Yangshou, the rising mist as it spreads over the Li Jiang River just as the fishermen set out on their arduous day, or simply find yourself intertwined in a bamboo forest in Kyoto.

Like a classical Chinese ink painter, the subtleties of light and shadow and his mastery of composition are beautifully reflected in this collection of 35 specially selected landscapes in black and white.

These stunning photographs of landscapes and nature taken and collected over the last 9 years are from his travels to Sri Lanka, Siem Reap, Italy, France, China and Japan. This is the very first time that they have gone on exhibit and this is Russel’s first major exhibition-sale since 2005.
