Going forward, I wish to channel my inner thoughts and emotions into my photos and I am excited to see what kind of photos I will make. I guess I am using photography for self-discovery but in the process, I hope that people who look at my photos can relate to it in some way – that they can be a trigger for wonder, imagination, self-reflection, or self-discovery.
I often have vivid story like dreams and I think there are stories that want to come out – stories about another side of myself, of another world inside me. Lately, these dreams are dark and mysterious as I struggle with existential questions about life and human nature.
I want to capture these stories so I can understand that unexplored side of myself but it escapes the moment I become conscious. I’ve thought of writing fiction to tell those stories but I find it difficult to put down in words something that I can’t even fully grasp, let alone remember. I turn to photography to try to capture those stories that seem to only surface in dreams, in the outside world.
