Sze Tsung Leong – En Español

March 15, 2011

Born in Mexico City and raised in the UK and US, photographer Sze Tsung Leong does urban landscapes with an 8×10 camera. His current show at Yossi Milo gallery in New York, Cities, features a number of photos from Latin America.

I didn’t know it was possible to take a photograph in Havana that doesn’t feature an elegantly decayed pastel interior or a 1950s American automobile.

My favorite photo in the series is, of all places, of Manhattan. I can’t remember the last time I was surprised by an image from New York.

It’s ridiculous to post 400 pixel jpegs of big ass C-prints from an 8×10 negative [Yossi Milo’s website has bigger jpegs from the series]. I’m actually going to be in New York for a couple of weeks at the end of March so I’ll have the privilege of seeing this show in person.

I was curious if there were any interviews of Leong on YouTube. Interestingly, the only one I could find is in Spanish. It accompanied an exhibition at the Monterrey Museo de Arte Contemporaneo of his work, Horizons.
