Reviews

Praise for Celestial Realm: "A truly sublime photo book." - Business Week "Wang Wusheng's breathtaking photographs unlock the secret of traditional Chinese landscape painting." - Seattle Post-Intelligence "Each page is a revelation." - Parabol "Duotone photographs are the achingly beautiful stuff that dreams are made of. These granite peaks shrouded in mist look like islands in the clouds-at once serene and strikingly dramatic. The result enthralls, with an almost painful yearning thats akin to the numinous." - Artsforum
