David Burdeny’s Nets Study 5, China reflects the tranquil mood of this bedroom, encouraging rest and relaxation. Burdeny has a knack for photographing serene environments, allowing the viewer to get lost in the imagery for a moment or two. The space, designed by Jay Jenkins of Jenkins Baer Associates, features rich coffee colored walls that create a dramatic backdrop for an escape to the South China Sea.
Burdeny captured this image in Fujian, China, just outside of Shanghai. It was taken from the rooftop of the owner of the property’s home, who happens to be the individual in the boat! Burdeny was drawn to this location because of its graphic nature. The water is shallow, allowing the surface to act like a mirror which reflects the overcast sky.
