I don’t want to just take great photos, I want to tell great stories as well.
I am street photographer who was based in Sydney Australia for 4 and half years. My two upcoming major solo projects are based on this time abroad. I've found that the streets and the public domain provide me with the means to capture life being lived all within a frame.
I take photos because I love taking photos and encountering surprises in the everyday and the resulting images.
I am a commercial, portrait, and fine art photographer living and working in Singapore. I am a founding member and administrator of 5ive Foot Way.
I live my life through photography, and believe them to be one and the same. I do not think of photography as a way to tell stories, nor do I wish to play that role. I do not think photographs have a storytelling capacity — but they may have the ability to help make their viewers, storytellers.
I photograph because I can, I want to, and I must.
Time is always against us. Yet the plethora and complexity of events that happened around us often overwhelmed our senses that we tend to shut down.
Photography suspends time and space. It carved a dimension for me to see and feel again. What I have missed, or already missing in my life.
I picked up a camera in the beginning to just photograph landscapes whenever I travel. It slowly become a form of expressing myself through my photographs.
Leaving the earlier introspective photography, now my photographs are just things that look beautiful to me, though ordinary, only photographing something whenever I feel a strong urge to.
I do not try to tell stories with my photographs.
Looking for a passion for half of my life, eventually have had my encounter with streetphotography and embarked on a no-turning back journey. Photography has since become my second life - a second chance to relive life, a second chance for me to appreciate human, connection and the world with a third eye and a born again mind.
My photography is usually more introspective though my colour work carries more bearable lightness of my being.
