  1. Where do the children play?

    13 Apr 2016

    Not a war zone I haven’t been writing a lot since my exhibition, so many things going on but I promise I will try. Few weeks ago, I chanced upon this unique installation of mist that create an ephemeral cloud in the sculpture garden at NGV International, St Kilda Road.…

    Port Melbourne, Victoria About 2 weeks to go and preparation for our exhibition is almost complete. All exhibiting images have been printed and sent for framing at Dean’s Framing in Thornbury.

    The eighth prompt for the CCP Salon Instagram Project is Radiance. And this is my response to it Radiance Finally, two more prompts to go and I’m done with the project. Not that it’s something I really enjoy doing (photographing in response to a prompt), but I reckon it’s a…


  7. Fading

    16 Oct 2015

    The sixth prompt for the CCP Salon Instagram Project is Fading. And this is my response to it Fading Fading was a transition tool I always used in video post productions, where you fade in or out from a video clip to another, so I wasn’t sure how to interpret…


  8. Guests

    11 Oct 2015

    The fifth prompt for the CCP Salon Instagram Project is Guests. And this is my response to it Guests Guests always appear as temporary. Humans are guests to planet Earth, because we don’t live forever, Mother Nature is the host. So I can’t include people in my picture for this…

  14. Print It

    19 Aug 2015

    It’s always a good practise to move your images from your screen to sheets. Holding the physical print give me a real satisfaction in my photography practise. Printing as a medium is one of the most meaningful ways that you can enjoy photography. Mind you, I’m not talking about K-Mart…

    05 Aug 2015

    22 Jul 2015

    I’m not good at writing, that’s why I prefer to take pictures. But since I upgraded to the Professional version on Format.com, it includes 1000 pages and blog feature, so I thought might as well make good use of it and document some useful stuff from my photography journey.  If…
