Black and White. Light and Shadow. I always try to explore the endless possibilities of this kind of contrast in my works. I was influenced by Hong Kong master street photographer Fan Ho, who captured the unforgettable moments in streets of Hong Kong, and transformed those into true art-pieces. My interpretation of light and shadows is never the same again after seeing his works. The old days of Hong Kong are gone. The characteristic of lights changed as the elements inside the light are never the same again due to pollution. The faces of peoples are changing too, somehow they seemed less and less relaxed due to some hidden reasons. The atmosphere of the past does not exist anymore, but we may look at that from a different angle, in black and white, in lines and curves.
My goal is to make pictures that call attention to details other people overlook. A focus on details keeps us in the present and think about the past. Recently I have focused on black and white that capture the unique mood through smooth transition from lights to shadows.
There is always character to be found if we look carefully at the patterns, as if God already designed the scenes for us to enjoy and discover. Beauty fades, character remains. I hope we can continue the journey to explore the streets in Hong Kong, and let’s not give up on searching the missing values.
