After a decade on the road following the band Ladytron, Reuben Wu has developed a knack for documenting the overlooked and unexpected.  Wu is preoccupied with the “derelict, forgotten, remote and strange.”  His own transience and inability to make a mark are also themes in the work.  The images have a dreamy, almost visionary tint to them; the places and people don’t seem real and they all seem to be from a time long past.  As Wu says in  his artist statement, the images “subtly confound our perception of what is corporeal and what is tangible; as unremittingly human as they are impossible to place.”  You can view more of the work at the artist’s website.
