Hin Chua describes himself as a hunter of images. Using maps to locate potential targets in the landscape, Hin roams the streets and suburbs seeking out intersections where the urban and rural landscapes collide. Sometimes absurd and often comical, Hin's eye searches out points of interest that lift his images beyond a simple documentary record of our world.

In this photograph "A Mile from Zhang Jiang High Technology Park, Shanghai", a seemingly familiar landscape of electricity pylons is given a delightful frisson by a snapped power cable, caught as if by the wind, dangling like a broken limb. Weeds sprout up defying their concrete surroundings.

"It's like jazz," Hin says, "you are just out there riffing", catching a moment that is unpredictable and improvised.
