2015 Emerging Photography Contender: Ning Kai/Sabrina Scarpa

For The Land Between Us, Zhengzhou-based photographers Ning Kai and Sabrina Scarpa delve into the unknown corners of the natural world, finding moments of revelation and intimacy within the untouched wilderness. 

Write Kai and Scarpa in their Artist Statement, “Our photography is focused on what surrounds all of us. Nature. For our project, we visit thinly populated areas and remote wilderness. Our documented journeys are characterised as poetic and experimental, in which we want to remove borders and emphasise that the essence of life lies within nature, for which we are all equal. With this message we hope to contribute to establishing human connections, regardless of the backgrounds. Ourselves being a good example.”
