My name is Stone Peng and I am a photographer based here in Grand Rapids, MI. My photos have won national and international awards, including 2nd place at the 2019 Black and White Spider Awards (73 countries, 6418 entries), 3rd place at the 2020 International Color Awards (73 countries, 6093 entries) and over 30 others. I have exhibited photos in 20 different states and have been included in numerous publications. I try to show the Chinese philosophy of life and the aesthetic principles "less is more" and "empty is full" in creating my images. Using primarily white tones in the background lends a simplicity and ethereal purity to a subject that gives you a calm, peaceful, infinitely deep and immeasurable feeling. The empty space offers the viewer a peaceful feeling and also gives the viewer a chance to focus on what it really takes to find balance in life and capture a little piece of our self. “Tranquility, simplicity and beauty are the essence of my images.” I hope that you can see through my photos express the feelings I had when taking them.
