Surface and Symbol

One of the reasons why I enjoy photographing flowers is for their beauty, as well as their darkness. I always say that I prefer dead ones, there is more character in them. Wilted, brown with flickers of colour from when they were alive. Flowers are given in time of celebration as well as in death. The later is what I'm drawn to most.  All beautiful things age, it's the transient nature of youth and beauty. Which, I believe, is something that we shouldn't hold onto. In this fleeting moment, I capture  these flowers in their prime and glory. But I also look forward to when they age because there is also beauty in their death.

TA-KU | Vivid Sydney

A short photo diary of Vivid Sydney 2016 and TA-KU's concert last Friday night. I was fortunate enough to attend his artist talk which was a part of Vivid's program. I respect him even more as an artist and person. He is humble and an inspiration, particularly to young up and coming producers. I respect how real, raw and unapologetic he is about his emotions and sensitivities - which resonates in his music. TA-KU has no musical background, but it's a testament that passion, practice, faith and work ethic will get you through.
