Snorkelling at one of my favourite sites on the Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia we came across a Green Sea Turtle with a lot of attitude. They come to this are to be cleaned by a little fish called Cleaner Wrasse, I guess she didn’t want us to watch her.
"Hua" means flower in Chinese, which is often related to life and eroticism in the metaphors in artworks. In this project I explore the commonalities and connections between the flowers and feminine in terms of emotional vulnerability and sensitivity, so that emotions such as calm, uncertainty, fear, anxiety, and loneliness, emerge in conceptual and artistic forms.
As it usually happens I create my favourite images at the end of the year. And this year is not an exception. I've captured this petrified dragon end of December and was pretty happy with the results. My son usually helps me to find magical creatures hidden within the shapes and patterns. This time he helped me with identifying these rocks as a dragon.
Another one from superman Barn, this beautiful barn was constructed in outback of Australia for one of the superman series movie that aired in 2006.
The barn was just one of several buildings constructed for the film, which also included a two storey house and some outbuildings, with the setting chosen for its outlook across the outback.
The producers made it look just like the original, including paying the owner to plant and grow four hectares of corn to match the farm in the 1978 Superman.
Just below the site a neighbour had an old hayshed the producers didn’t want in the shot, so they knocked it down and then when filming had finished they built him a new $20,000 shed.
The barn is already showing the effects of the weather, having been built to serve its purpose for the movie only, however, it can be seen from the road and has become a regular pull-over spot for drivers-by to stop and take a photo.
BOAB is one of the iconic trees of Western Australia. When I took this photo, I was lucky that the street light by the intersection lined up right behind the BOAB, giving the halo effect around the tree. What's interesting was to see how light pollution affected our ability to enjoy the stars. Close to the orange halo, you can only see a few stars and as your eyes wonder higher in the photo you can see how many stars scattered on the night sky.
I imagine the year to be 1957, where Havana was the world’s 4th-most-expensive city at the time. According to International Labour Organization, the average industrial salary in Cuba became the world’s eighth-highest in 1958, and the average agricultural wage was higher than in developed nations such as Denmark, West Germany, Belgium, and France. Cuba also had Latin America’s highest per capita consumption rates of meat, vegetables, cereals, automobiles, telephones and radios during this period.
Many vintage buildings remain in Havana today, in exactly the conditions as they were in the 1950s… and many of my friends still play and live in such buildings. Today, as the Castro era wanes, Cuba’s youth have their doubts, dreams and their stories….
1957 is a collection of portraits and stories of my friends in Havana…The title of this one is Havana Dance Story...
This photograph explores the unknown or unseen stories of the local Indian people who work and live in hard conditions. This was captured in the slums evoking the scenes that reveal true emotion and real stories of the locals.
