Growing up in the moderately monotonous suburbs, Ressang searched for a more enrapturing environment where he could meet individuals from various backgrounds and explore different cultures. Aiming to work within the constraints of the realities presented to him, Ressang refreshes his photography with his own interpretations of the subject as an outside observer.
Intrigued by the history of the places he encounters, the photographer captures the diversity of those around him, working to find the underlying connections within and between cultures. Through a combination of video and stills, his work is characterised by a thoughtful curiosity of people’s surroundings. In a world where social views are becoming more singularised by the Western perspective of identity, Ressang challenges the worldview and works to encapsulate societal differences by bringing them to the forefront of his photography.
