About this artwork
'Resistance' forms part of a series taken in Borneo, Malaysia. Due to rising sea levels, parts of a forest near the coast is already submerged by sea water. This image expresses the resistance or power, someone or something is able to generate in an environment in which it does not belong.
Frank Zschieschang (Germany) lives and works as a photographer and web designer in Hong Kong. He was born and raised in a small town on the idyllic coast of the Baltic Sea in East Germany growing up in a socialist environment. His childhood and adolescence were very safe and protected but citizens were not allowed to travel to non-socialist countries.
He suffered with the knowledge that he would never see the vast extent of the Grand Canyon, the colourful display of the Northern Lights or the setting sun over the majestic dunes in the Sahara.
But things changed when The German Wall came down and a completely different world presented itself. Suddenly, the whole world was open to be explored. This was when Frank Zschieschang first came into touch with photography.
He borrowed two rolls of film and the family SLR to explore the world and discovered photography as his true passion. In years of self-study, living in the UK, Spain and Hong Kong he developed his photography skills to a professional level.
