Fuelled by an enduring passion for humanity’s quest for self-discovery and the mystical realms of spirituality, I’ve been documenting the ebb and flow of daily life these past six years. This journey has introduced me to diverse worlds of individuals and communities as mystical as those from the holy Hindu Aghoris of the Pyres of Varanasi to the vibrant inner world of cosplay in the heartlands of Singapore, my own country.
Through the visual language of photography, I listen to people’s stories as they open their world to the light. Like a dance duet, we create intimate visual narratives in sync with the rhythm of life and the relationships forged. I then pass on their stories to you, having received a glimpse of their wisdom.
