I am a person with few words. I was born and raised in Taiwan, in my twenties, I used to be a fashion editor for many years, therefore the visual aesthetics is always important to me. Living abroad as an expat for more than twenty years in four countries, I have turned my passion into photography, my innate aesthetic appreciation of visual and creativity helps to shape my vision of photography, I currently live in Los Angeles.
My passion for capturing the ephemeral moments of everyday scenes on the streets has yielded a series of street photography. Those photos were shot in different countries to perceive something mundane in an unexpected way. My work is often abstract and incorporates elements of geometry, high contrast with the goal to illustrate an emotion of the human condition.
I started photographing the streets after I moved to Seoul in 2014. Largely self taught, I began to step out my comfort zone and started capturing the moment in time that I live in, through my lens . I was inspired by the work of Fan Ho, Martine Franck and Henri Cartier – Bresson, influenced by using natural light to emphasize the drama of the subjects and combine graphic juxtaposition of elements. Street photography has become my corner of intimacy and the passion of my life.
The ability to tell a story with a single image is what made street photography my preferred art form. I constantly search for subtle clues that reveal more about life, the people and places. My education in journalism influences how I see the world around me. For me, photography has been an act of discovery, the subject matters of daily environment transform into visual memories that cannot be replicated. Capturing the unique unposed humanity of moments is a task I enjoy doing.
Life is a journey, everyday we have the choice how we are going to explore, make connections and define boundaries. My photography allows me to take a step into new adventures, and subconsciously carry me past the departure point. My next photo will be part of me on a new voyage.
