About Wouter van Buuren

China - Timespaces - is a series on the experience of time and space in China's largest cities.

Each work shows a collection of photographs which were taken on a particular day while following a predetermined line on the map. Every kilometer Van Buuren entered a rooftop and photographed the landscape in the opposing directions perpendicular to the line traveled. The relative positions of the photographs are chronological and correspond with the relative positions of the locations.

Looking at the photographs from the left to the right you can trace the journey Van Buuren made that day. At the same time you can experience the passing of time as the light changes from dawn to dusk.

The projects were carried out between 2012 and 2014 in: Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Shanghai, Chongqing, Xi’an and Hong Kong.

Soon there will be an update on the latest projects in Hong Kong.
