About MeMy point of view
"Reality is dead. Reality remains dead. And we have killed it. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers?”
My artistic point of view, as well as what I believe is today’s world can be best expressed with rephrasing the famous aphorism as above. In our consumption society, images need no longer pretend to be real, because our experiences/observations/perceptions are predominantly artificial; even naïve claims on reality still needs to use hyperreal terms, as the imagery itself. That is the starting point of my imagery; I aim to precede the original and lose the distinction between reality and representation.
I have been into photography for more than 10 years, and started learning the photography hence the light in the darkroom. I am a scientist and in my research I use quite sophisticated techniques and state-of-art imaging system to visualize the cells having with a resolution as low as 1-10 nm. So, I know the light pretty well both in theory and in photography.
I am making my living on protein research; and when it comes to photography, I prefer to be artistic and creative rather than commercial. I believe images should say something, carry subtext(s).

I work on project basis, so please contact me for the ongoing projects & the details.
I am open to work trade, if you work for my projects, I can shoot your ideas*.
I love natural light; but I also own a studio. Use both depending on the requirements of the project.
I approach every shoot with the same professionalism, and I expect the same from the people I work with.
Finally, time is the most important thing and unfortunately it is irreversible. So, please don’t waste each other’s time.
