In my work as a fine arts photographer, I try to express the beauty of the nature that we can see in our everyday life, which is often overlooked.  I think that the nature is a great artist and I try to express my interpretation of its art through my lens.  My subjects are mostly flowers, fruits and vegetables.  I believe in simplicity – the beauty can be best expressed in form of simplicity, and I also believe in the importance of the lighting.  Contrary to many painters who try to express the beauty of the nature as if they were photographers, I try to express it as a painter.

 

I have been pursuing the beauty of nature, particularly, carefully chosen vegetables, fruits and flowers with my lens.  My work as a fine art photographer is to express the beauty of nature that we can see in our everyday life, which we often overlook.  Like Georgia O’Keeffe succeeded in expressing in her paintings, I try to relate the beauty of my subjects sensually and sensuously. I will be flattered if the viewer can relate to my exciting feelings when I was creating each image.  I believe in simplicity and in the importance of the lighting.  Every tangible subject that can be photographed has a beautiful aspect. It all depends on how you view it.
