I have long been a curious wanderer, and traveling has thus been a big part of my identity and lifestyle. From the penguin colony in Simon’s Town, South Africa to the heavenly island Samosir in Indonesia, I have spent many years of my life photographing mesmerizing beauties around the world. And, the people I met on the journeys have given me a different set of eyes each and every time.
The compilation series Imagined Nostalgia is a reflection of my on-going artistic pursuit of both memory-collecting and memory-making. Life is a journey full of memories. We find meanings in not only recalling some from the past but also making some for the future. Neither the memories from the past nor the memories-to-be are any less precious than the others. And, I am grateful that I can share some of mine as well as those of the viewers through photography, beyond time and space.
