San Francisco based photographer Jin Zhu’s project Endless Stream looks at California’s Central Valley. Jin has been documenting the ways that water — and lack of it — transforms the landscape and the ways that humans live on the land.
Jin’s work frequently takes her to the landscapes of the American West, places like Monument Valley, the Nevada Desert, harsh environments where humans have passed through or tried to settle in search of a better life.
Jin writes that her newest work examines “how landscape shapes the human experience” and how we “attempt to transform unfamiliar places into the image of the familiar in spite of natural limitations of local climate and resources.”
I recently spoke with Jin over the phone via skype about her photography as well as how she transitioned from a potential career in macro-biology to life as a photographer.
