My curiosity for photography derived from my love of exploring new places, whether it be visiting a local outdoor garden to traveling a foreign land. My intention when picking-up the camera is to capture moments that I know I would never get to experience again. As Karl Lagerfeld once said:
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
Currently, I am fixated on monochromatic or black and white photography. One of my favorite photographers, Peter Lindbergh, is famously known for it. The reason why I am drawn to black and white photographs is because it drives viewers to focus solely on the subject-matter while omitting all the distractions and noise surrounding it. In a way, black and white photographs is as vulnerable as it gets because it places the viewers in a position to look deep into the soul of the subject before them.
Here are the tools used in documenting these moments: Nikon D3400, Photoshop 2020
