The Guesthouse of Cascades

Wenxin Zhang

Publisher: Jiazazhi press

What is striking when looking through Zhang Wenxin’s photobook “The Guesthouse of Cascades” is its meticulously created otherworldly atmosphere. Framed by a written short-story and combining photography - of architectural features, landscapes, detail (of humans, animals, things) - with CGI and other artificial images, the series forms a fascinating blend of reality and illusion.

“Departing from a mountain guesthouse that dates back in the 90s, the experience from the past and present entangles, the "beasts" that hides in the crevice slowly appear beyond the images. Every page of the book resembles a slice of time.” — from the publisher’s description
