A Time Capsule

So after visiting the Annie Leibovitz exhibition I realised that much of what I shoot involves context. I mentioned in my post on the exhibition that photography is like a time capsule. The surrounding features that may seem like ordinary things on the day it is captured may be something entirely different in time.

I realised that when I shoot, I enjoy framing things in the background with the…

In the end…

Montage’s main events have come to a close, but I still have mixed emotions. I’m exhausted. So mentally worn with all the (sorry for the lack of a better word) bullshit this has put me through. Anyone who thinks I justhave Montage should try being the Montage Director. Because quite frankly it is unlikely you know what it’s like, dreaming night after night about screwing up events or having…

Short Term 12 (2013)

Everyone you meet in your life makes a difference. Be it the unfortunate events that we brave through in our lives or the warm comfort of a caring individual, it changes us.

Short Term 12 (2013) is an inspiring film with spectacular writing and superb acting, truly  a film deserving of the two SXSWawards it clinched last year. This indie film…

Annie Leibovitz- A Photographer’s Life 1990-2005

Annie Leibovitz- A Photographer’s Life 1990-2005

Today I visited yet another photography exhibition but it was quite different from Saldago’s Genesis. Annie Leibovitz’s A Photographer’s Life is an exhibition quite literally about the life of Annie Leibovitz from her professional celebrity portraits of the young Leondardo Dicaprio, editorials for Rolling Stones and advertorials with Jim Carrey, to her private life with her family and…

The Art of Getting By

The Art of Getting By

A perfect world does not exist. A perfect world cannot exist. We are living breathing creatures with our own autonomy to think and feel, with an infinite amount of different combination of experiences that make up who we are today, how can there be a perfect world.

We live by the standards of ourselves and the standards of others every single day. It changes us, the way we think, the way we act,…

Assassin’s Creed

Assassin’s Creed

Since the post I did on X-Men, I had finished the main story lines of the big franchise Assassin’s Creed. While I do find the endless war between Assassin’s and Templars illogical and unnecessary, it is always fun prancing around from rooftops to rooftops and assassinating targets, but…

The Fault In Our Stars (2014)

The Fault In Our Stars (2014)

(Image from: https://www.facebook.com/faultinourstarsmovie/)

The Fault in Our Stars (2014) promised us love and heartbreak of which it delivered, but which person with a soul wouldn’t feel sad when someone important in the show dies?? That more or less summaries this movie. They used a sure way to make people cry with little value added to the title.

The context and setting for the movie had so…

River Safari- Rediscovering Photography

River Safari- Rediscovering Photography

I have decided to change my direction in photography. After 5 years or so doing it, it does get rather stagnant and uninspiring. Now I’m shifting the focus back to the core purpose of photography to me- capturing beautiful imagery. This series of photos are mainly from my recent Fuji Sensia 100 which I was talking about in my last post. Yet they are not exactly that. Seasoned film users will be…

Genesis (2013)- Sebastião Salgado

Genesis (2013)- Sebastião Salgado

I was running an errand and attempting to finish my roll of film earlier today and went past the National Museum of Singapore and remembered there was a photo exhibition there that I wanted to visit but didn’t get the chance to. Genesis by Sebastião Salgado was the much needed inspiration I was looking for (though inspiration in me still isn’t flowing).
