Happy Rain

The series of photographs “Happy Rain” depict movements of coloured umbrellas. A perception that rain does not necessarily mean staying indoors with grey skies and bad weather. Rain can lead to opportunities of catching people going about their daily lives set within vibrant colours, oblivious to the wetness that surrounds them.

Dreams in Dreamland

“Dreams in Dreamland” provides an unorthodox view on an urban landscape. Depicting the surreal and dreamy mood of being a bystander, observing the world in slow motion. Like a Lemarchand* box revealing alternative planes of existence throughout a puzzle, my inhibitions and imagination unfold before me. Shy by nature, the hidden layers of self are slowly peeled away.

Sumo 相 撲

An unlikely epitome of a Western ideal

Text by Oana Uiorean

 

Sumo is certainly not one of the martial arts that are an instant hit with women like me, or with most Westerners for that matter, many of us being notoriously focused on the outer shell of things.

Life on the River - Siem Reap

The Tonlé Sap is a combined lake and river system of major importance to Cambodia.

 

The Tonlé Sap is also the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia and is an ecological hot spot that was designated as a UNESCO biosphere in 1997.
