The World I See

The World I See :: A Photography Project exploring the many different perspectives the world offers through my lens. Photography as a reflexive tool serves to open the mind for reflection and contemplation upon moments we might otherwise take for granted, and as aptly described, "to plead the fleeting moment to remain".

Embracing both realms of digital and film photography, I present a collection of images which hopefully speak to you as much as they have shaped my perspective about the world around me. Enjoy.

:: Melbourne City Sightings #01 ::
Fitzroy, Melbourne
2 weeks and this city has really grown on me. every bit of the city a seemingly curated work of art. From Fitzroy to St Kilda, from Prahran to Docklands, there is just so much to take in. 
I present this next series of pictures hoping to show a little more of Melbourne, and the sights that have drawn me deeper in love with the City.

:: an afternoon read ::
another day, another city, another passage of travel. “vernacular photography” - encompassing the ordinary, the common, the everyday life. if that’s what my photography has been all about, then that’s me. that’s what my photography is all about. everyday moments, snapshots depicting everyday life. the ordinary man on the street, where is he going? what is he thinking about? show me a glimpse of your life, give me a piece of your soul. there is much more to it than an ordinary photograph, Sir

To shoot more film!

There’s just something unmistakable about film photography, an undeniable romance, unforeseen results, unexpected surprises. I love film.

:: Hong Kong ‘13 - Spotted #3 ::

I just love Hong Kong. If not for the wonderful food, then for the amazing life and activity out on the streets. Each image with it’s own story to tell, lives intertwined, paths crossed, all existing together within this same time and space.

:: ‘lo hei’ 捞起 ::
As a yearly tradition, families and friends gather round the table during the Chinese New Year and partake in ‘lo hei’ (Cantonese 捞起). Yú shēng (鱼生) is served as an appetizer to bring good luck for the new year and tossing the shredded ingredients into the air with chopsticks while saying auspicious wishes out loud marks the beginning of a prosperous new year. It is believed that the higher you toss, the greater your fortunes will be.
