Central Park New York
Time is not bound by culture, and neither is nature. In order to comprehend and appreciate all aspects of Central Park, Jeff Liao followed the Chinese 24 Solar Terms timetable to document the micro changes that happen in this phenomenal “man-made nature”. By adapting the vertical format and multiple perspectives of traditional Chinese landscape paintings, these photographs capture the life and activities that occur within the shifting landscape of the “lung of Manhattan”.

The photographs are accompanied by an essay by Alexander Nemerov, who addresses the work in relation to the American past, focusing in particular on the way the images draw space and time down to ceremonial points, in which “all that ever happened in these places seems crystallized in his tableaux, as if the quiet melancholy of Crewdson’s scenes gathered the unruly sorrows and other little-guessed feelings of people long-gone who once stood on those spots.”
