Think of photography as a person. Then every photograph is a collaboration. But what the human sees, feels, and comprehends are meaningless to the laws of physics, electronics and optics. The photographer thus needs to have a sense of objectivity. Along side of this detachment is also the respect of the observer’s paradox.

My subject matters are the everyday, the unspectacular. Lines and angles, light and shadows, near and far. Mostly amongst street photography, street stills and cityscapes of whichever city I happen to be at.
