A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing. - William Dobell
I believe that in photography, the holy grail is to capture not only an image but also to be able to put every emotion of the moment that will give weight and soul to the picture. In reality, it's the candid shots that often able to bring back the memory of what actually happened.
When I take images or create graphic designs, my intention is to send more than just what is seen on the canvass. Welcome to my gallery, hope you'll enjoy your visit here.
