Alisan Fine Arts is pleased to present Synchronicity, our second solo exhibition for landscape photographer Stephen King. Featuring King’s recent photographs in Hong Kong alongside his award-winning landscape images, this highly curated exhibition explores the synchronicity between King’s natural and urban landscapes. Through juxtaposing contrasting scenes, one realises the subtle commonalities found in King’s compositions such as shapes and use of light. The show examines the harmonious relationship between city and nature and the theme that humanity and nature are inextricably linked.
Though based in Hong Kong, Stephen King frequently travels the world to capture images that evoke a landscape’s simultaneous capacity for drama and serenity. King’s photography is often described as possessing a painterly quality — a style he cultivates through his sedulous use of light, colour, and composition.
The gallery has been representing King since 2015: coordinating his first show in Hong Kong, a joint exhibition Un/Natural: Photographs by Stephen King and Ming Thein in 2015; organising his first solo exhibition Rhythms in Nature in 2018; and showcasing his work at Art Basel Hong Kong 2016 & 2017, and Taipei Dangdai in 2020. King also exhibits his work regularly at Fine Art Asia/Ink Asia and his work has been shown in California, New York, London and Paris. His large scale prints have proved popular with private and corporate collectors around the world and his images have been featured in public spaces around Hong Kong including at “Otto e Mezzo”, Hong Kong’s popular three-star Michelin restaurant.
King’s photos have won awards and distinctions at many of the world’s most popular photo competitions. Additionally, his work has been featured in numerous prestigious art and photography publications including National Geographic, Asia Art News, Zoom Magazine and Art Investment Magazine. King regularly supports charity auctions by donating his work to raise funds for worthy causes.
