I have always loved sharing stories. It is an integral part of the human condition – Every key event and situation, every highlight or setback, every emotion felt, every experience and memory, is essentially a story, and sharing these stories and experiences defines how we as humans connect with those around us to build bonds and relationships.
Every story begins with an image in your head; every figment of your imagination creates a mental picture in your mind. As the classic saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words” – One simple image can convey the most complex of ideas. That was how I fell head over heels with photography, because to me, it is the quintessence of a magical story.
With that in mind, I began exploring the beckoning ceaseless beauty of our planet in search of wander and magical moments, hoping to capture them for an eternity in a photograph. From the highest peaks of the Himalayan mountain range in Nepal, to the depths of the Indian Ocean in Maldives; from the rice paddy terraces in Bali, to the metropolitan cityscape of Singapore, I searched for beautiful moments in the invisible gestures of human interactions, or when the vast natural beauty of our planet surrounds me.
I might not have been to the North Pole to see the Northern Lights, nor to the Amazon rainforest to live with the lost tribes of the world, but I intend to. I am a man on a mission – To creatively capture the human condition, as well as the beauty that our world offers in abundance in my photographs, so as to evoke raw, passionate emotions to whoever lay eyes on them.
In short, I just want to tell captivatingly good stories!
