Depending on who you ask, the Eiffel Tower is an eyesore or an architectural wonder. Love it or hate it, the worlds most visited monument is an iconic symbol of Paris. People will travel thousands of miles just to take a picture of it, a snapshot identical to those taken countless times before. For his series Tour Eiffel, British photographer Jasper White manages to find a unique perspective of, what is likely, the most photographed structure in the world.
“With my images I want to evoke viewers’ imagination,” says Xiaoxiao Xu, a Chinese-Dutch photographer whose latest project does just that. The photos in She Huo were taken in two villages in Shaanxi, a province in northcentral China. The province is considered a cradle of Chinese civilization. It is home to several ancient capitals. The world famous Terracotta Army built by China’s first emperor was found there.
