Fragments of Asia

I fell in love withphotography because I've never been good with words..
 
Photography and digitalmanipulation are my way of communicating. In the beginning I fought against digital but I quickly realised it's an opportunity to release the imagination further. To be able to capture a moment of life through the camera lens is amazing but then to transform it to an image by extracting that moment fromreality is incredible.
 
I can get frustrated with a camera because my imagination rolls so much further beyond what thehuman eye can truly appreciate or what our minds let us remember. The mere simple things in life. India is full of them. The lady with the pile of leaves on her head, in the western world, you would either see a man doing that or a women dressed in rags, a very masculine looking women. Not in India, this lady is dressed in pink and has golden details decorating her sari. Its beauty and acelebration.
 
I love images that provoke thoughts, which make me think about life and situations, my life. That spark my mind. That inspire visuals in my mind. That scream out 2000 words all jumbled up instead of 1000 words plainly obvious. It's like my own version of acrossword puzzle.
 
People are my thing. I don't won't to limit myself by saying portraits, because i see more. I see more then just a lady sitting against a yellow wall smoking, I see her comfortability in her body language and the colours in the photograph represent vibrancy of life but yet the bars suggest that she's not free.. Who imprisons her?
Women, mothers,grandmothers and children, I see family, familiarity, knowingness, history,beauty, wisdom... Love
 
I'm constantly amazed at light and how it works. How the same person, the same object is completely different with a slight change in light. This supports the theory that everyoneis truly beautiful, just depends on the lighting.
 
My last day job was photographing families, animals, babies, children and anything in between. It'll probably be one of the hardest jobs I ever do on all levels, but the reward of creating and capturing moments of people's life will be one ofthe most  fulfilling things I do. You can never recreate a moment...
 
I'm eager to discover and expand my knowledge and skill levels in anything and everything creative. I'm hoping to work and learn alongside like minded creatives, and delve into different mediums of art.
