The Silent and the Playful


“I look at photography as a relationship between light and film: light as a playful actor and film as a serious recorder. The job of a photographer, which is experimental by nature, is to write the best scenario for this one-time instant play. A genuine play is inevitably the result of accurate eyes, free mind, and fundamentals of photography at heart.

Light is the subject of my work. Unlike the usual process in photography that uses light as a mean to record a scene and tell its story, I am interested in light as a storyteller. In fact, the scene in my work is the medium to picture light, its mood on different surfaces, and its personality in different spaces.”
