Xuesheng Ma
Photographer

Xuesheng Ma uses poetic and abstract visual language as a metaphor for expressing the passing moment. Her works relate to the concepts of animistic and fleeting natural phenomena, which is an aesthetic experience that exists in eastern texts. She seeks to interpret this transcendent language definition through her work in contemporary photography.

Her work addresses humanity’s waning relationship with the elements. The images imply a longer, deeper gentle sadness and sensitivity to things passing, which reflects on “mono no aware” (物の哀れ) in Japanese phrase meaning reverence for nature and appreciation for the transience of things.

Xuesheng Ma’s work has been exhibited at UK,France, Japan, Netherlands.
