I constantly reflect on the possibilities, limits and failures that the medium of photography offers.

About the Artist

Tristan’s research-based art often involves digital compositing and appropriation of imagery to examine the veracities of our histories and the ways in which we socially construct knowledge in our image-saturated epoch. His works have been included in recent shows at Phoenix Art Museum, Arles Voies Off, France, Noorderlicht Photography Festival, Netherlands, the National Museum of Singapore, Kumho Museum of Art, Seoul, Jeonbuk Museum of Art, Jeonju, GoEun Museum of Photography, Pusan, Korea, RS Projects in Berlin, Germany and Shanghai World Exposition, China, amongst other. A passionate educator, Cai is also a Professor of Photography at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
