About

Fuelled by an enduring passion for humanity and spirituality, I’ve been following the ebbs and flow of daily life for the past four years. This has led me to meet and document, individuals and communities as far as the holy Hindu Aghoris from the Pyres of Varanasi, to the inner world of cosplaying in the heartlands of Singapore, my own country. Through photography I talk and listen to the people’s experiences, I understand their happiness, and their hardships. With these relationships forged and a glimpse of their wisdom received, I pass on their stories with you.

Southeast Asian photographer living in Singapore whose work focuses on the intertwined connection between humankind, the natural order and the interpretations of transcendence.
