The dynamic work of sculptor Gaylord Ho is instantly recognizable. Emotion oozes from the figures, as they throw their energy into dancerly poses. His female figures twist and twirl, animated and vital. Born in Taiwan, the 66-year-old artist has a fascinating personal history. Growing up as the son of low income farmers, Ho was expected to balance his studies while helping on the rice farm.
Wow, do I want to know more about the creator of these radiant photographs! All I know about the photographer is that his username on Flickr is bbe022001. Most importantly, though, I know that I am captivated by this collection.
The main focus of each marvelous image is the area around the Moon Bridge in Taipei, Taiwan. The soft blue, monochromatic palette and the sparkling rays of sunshine make the images feel so peaceful. The crystal clear water allows for a perfect reflection of an upside down world and his tones, lighting, and composition are exceptional. I really could get lost in these misty landscapes for hours. Mr. bbe022001–these photographs are amazing!
