Seeking inspiration for his landscape paintings, Yu Hanyu has spent many months since 2005 photographing the snow-covered Tibetan plateau and Himalayan mountains.
Reflections of Heaven, 2013 by Yu Hanyu is a signed 16" x 20" HD C-print. In an edition of 5, number 2/5 is available.
As artist and photographer, Yu Hanyu captures the towering row of mountains, the precipitous cliffs, the cold moon and the wasteland, the places beyond the Great Wall and the forests, the wind and the frost‚ with the Himalayans as his special muse. The artist says of his photographs of the mountains of Tibet: "Under a vast sky and white clouds, eagles soar -- the valley is deep, shadows are blurred. This is a mysterious and peaceful world in Tibet with abundant holy water running through the plateau."
