In the words of Sze Tsung Nicolás Leong (Mexico, 1970), the horizon in its most basic form is not only the line where sky and earth meet, it is also the most distant point reached by the gaze, and the limit of what we know. It separates and at the same time connects “acquaintances and strangers, relatives and foreigners, the near and the far.” Born of these reflections, Horizons is a series of photographs that form part of a continuous landscape running from the ghats of Varanasi and the steel and glass skyline of Seoul to the urban sprawl of Amman and the Andean peaks of Quito. It is the landscape of a planet that “floats in a space with no known limits.”
