About the Artist:

I'm an amateur photographer based in Malaysia, shooting mainly in black and white and long exposures. The biggest influences on my photography include the works of Michael Kenna, Ansel Adams, Cole Thompson and Hiroshi Sugimoto. I major in black and white long exposure photography because it's so effective in stripping out the superfluous, smoothening out the hard edges in a scene, leaving you with just the essentials.
