Piece description from the artist
Project :Emotion/Untold Stories
What inspires me about photography is that its simplicity to express one’s individuality
and tell stories. Stories displayed in photographs or hidden traces of them, whenever
I look at a photograph, I tend to seek out the narration in it. That is what I endeavour,
telling stories via photographs. Emotion/Untold Stories is one of my personal experiments
about expressing those whispers, and my wandering thoughts that come in solitude via
single still frame. And, I try to focus on the “silence” that plays a major part of human’s
emotion. Silence can speak out loudly and clearly when everything falls very quiet.
With those silence, I see the colors that will portray those lives and characters.
