Wang Xiao in ‘Spring Bloom’ by Charles Guo for Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong
Posted Mar 12, 2013
Wang Xiao is a singular sensation in ‘Spring Bloom’ by Charles Guo for Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong. A masterful piece of ethereal expression, we are invited to enjoy the magic of Spring on a whole new level. Transcending the trends, this visceral vision aims at elevating the experience of fashion art. In a world held hostage by consumerism, we must be willing to move past mediocrity to reach our artistic apex. And in this passionate piece of photographic poetry, Guo succeeds. With images that are equal parts light & dark/clear & blurry, his symbolism celebrates the strength of the human spirit. A visual validation of the power of transformation, this transcendent story allows us to participate in the process rather than remain casual observers. We are complex beings able to take in beauty on a multitude of levels, to limit our world to that of a watcher is to limit our potential. In a season that inspires change, Guo seems to be telling us that, if we find what moves us, we will be able to move past the sidelines and into the game. Capturing the heart of creativity, he delivers the delicate moments in-between the movements, giving us the permission to get up and feel.
