I found myself at the side of a road, struck by the scene in front of me: the exquisiteness of the landscape that I was seeing could not be succinctly reduced to a single, so-called perfect image of the scene. Much beauty and majesty may be found in a single image of a particular landscape, but at that particular moment, the notion of the â€˜perfectâ€™ frame came across as rather banal. Each image in this series was created to stand on its own as a distinctive composition. However, when explored as a triptych, one becomes conscious of different perspectives, the introduction of new physical elements, and fresh details. Ultimately, one becomes aware that each piece presents what was there, and also â€˜presentsâ€™ what was missing â€“ a state that our minds are able to meld together and form a kind of multi-dimensional grandeur of the scene.
To paraphrase Paul Cezanne, photography is not about creating a copy of nature: it is about realising feelings, sensations and thoughts. Nature, imagination and art inspire me. I draw from them in creating my works.
