Free Element 

Free Element, seascapes by Chinese born photographer Dodo Jin Ming, from April 18 - June 15, 2002. Respecting the awesome power and drama found only in the sea, Dodo Jin Ming creates violent black and white images that transport the viewer to a precipice about to be submerged under a cascade of water. Printing her pictures from a combination of two negatives, one of the sea, the other sky, Ming has intensified the power of the surging waves by blanketing them under an engulfing sky. Although this technique of multiple-printing harks back to the mid-19th Century and the majestic and peaceful seascapes of Gustave LeGray, Dodo Jin Ming’s turbulent images are more akin to the paintings of J.M.W. Turner and Winslow Homer. We also see strong literary connotations, such as Edgar Allen Poe’s "Descent into the Maelstrom" and Dante’s "Inferno." Ming made most of her exposures along the coast of Maine and the outskirts of Hong Kong. Often at great personal risk, she was able to capture on film the power and rage of the sea that would stir the heart of any sailor. Born in Beijing in 1955, she trained as a concert violinist before taking up photography.
