There lies a world beyond the frame. It’s yours to design and conceive.
When an image lets you fill in the blanks with your perception, your imagination is set free. An abstract monochrome image lets you colour the gaps with your ideas, like a child colours in her colouring book. That is when discipline sets in. Can you train your mind to let go of preconceived notions, meanings and symbolism? Discipline lies in two dimensions of my photography. First, in the linear symmetry of the clean lines and geometric shapes of the objects. Second, in the scale of nature to man. And in few images, the third dimension is added by the absence of colour.
Beauty is all shades of paint. Mysteries are often grey.
We, as humans, are tiny specks in this massive expanse of the world. I am in awe of the scale of nature to man. The natural landscapes I capture are aimed to depict just that. Ironically, humans, who destruct rhythms of nature, have a creative energy unlike any other species. I marvel at the forms and structures we create. By my urban photographs, I try to capture the patterns and symmetries in cities. Usually, these are in plain sight and we pass them by in our daily lives without a second glance. I pause, I pause it for others in time.
