This comes a tad late, but I was interviewed on Lifestyle Asia recently. Seeing your name in print is a foreign experience for me – particularly if it’s about photography. I think because photography so intensely personal to me. When you invest so much of yourself into your work, its hard to hand it over to others to be critiqued and judged. It’s something I’ve always wrestled with.
I’m immensely humbled by the kindness so many people have shown me. The constructive feedback which has helped me grow in leaps and bounds. And at the end of the day, art is meant to be shared, not locked away in some girl’s hard drive.
This article focuses on an aspect of my work that I often forget to blog about. My support of various NGOs, and the occasions which I’ve been privileged to see a side of life I wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity to capture.
As for a personal update, summer has blazed by in a dizzying speed. I’m currently in the middle of my law degree and have had not one, but three internships this summer lined back-to-back.While taking part-time classes. Now that it’s late August, and school is just around the corner, I can scarcely believe I made it through.
I’ll be heading out of town for a few days to get some much-needed R&R. I find if I don’t leave Hong Kong every few months or so, I go a little stir-crazy. Much as I love this city, the materialism and pace inevitably wear me down. I’m looking forward to a few days of mountain biking, rock climbing and drifting lazily down a river in a bamboo raft. Aaaah.
