Tseng Kwong Chi: The Expedition
November 14, 1998 - February 28, 1999
A photographer and performance artist, Tseng Kwong Chi created his own unique version of tourist snapshots. In a ten-year expedition that began in 1979, he is pictured throughout the world at monuments ranging from the sacred to the secular to the blatantly commercial to the natural. Reminiscent of 19th century landscape pictures, the artist becomes a romantic figure in the sublime awe-inspiring scenery.
