“I strive to craft landscapes that evoke a mood, strike a chord of recognition, or trigger a sense of longing within the viewer. Depending on the image, one may sense tranquility and peacefulness or imagine evoke a feeling of mystery and vivid qualities, drawing the viewer to the subsequent images. I photograph dramatic landscapes that are at the edge of the light, the border of night and day, as I search for exquisite and unique perspectives of the natural world.”Jennifer Wu
