Reuben Wu's Extraterrestrial Landscapes

  • by Jenny Bahn

We’re big fans of the urban cityscape, but sometimes you’ve got to take a break from the sidewalks and skyscrapers and see what lives just beyond the familiar. Chicago photographer Reuben Wu explores the thin line between the terrestrial and the extraterrestrial in his various landscape images taken across the country. Choosing a palate more befitting a vintage sci-fi film from the ‘60s, Wu documents ominous horizon lines and jagged cliffs, captured with a more subversive, alien directive. Mountains easily become moonscapes and sulfurous ponds look ripe with primordial goo. It’s proof positive that you don’t need to look towards other galaxies for the weird stuff. We’ve got plenty of that right here.
