Why do you like photography?

For me, photography is about freezing a small moment in time from a specific perspective and telling a story. I am more comfortable recording moments than directing them. I feel like the act of making a frame, is about holding small moments for posterity and creating narratives that are like puzzles of the bigger story of my day to day journey.

What encouraged you to be a part of the PA community?

I was encouraged to be part of the group because of the open and candid way they have accepted me and have accepted my voice. It's a place of of sharing and exchanging ideas, experiences, and frames. Come and see for yourself, and prepare to get your perspectives informed.

Which theme did you choose and why? What was your thought process behind the images?

I chose the theme colour. I find that it's an interesting aspect that helps us form our perspective in a certain scene. For each of the pictures I created, I was looking for scenes where you can sense the mood through the colours that were available around me. I am inspired by photogs that use colour as a storytelling tool in their frames, and it's my goal to create bodies of work where I can do the same. It's fascinating how we use colours to label our experiences of certain scenes and moments, hence my choices for this selection.

Any advice to those who haven't joined a walk yet? What to expect?

PA Sydney has allowed me to come out of my shell and help me find my voice in my frames. It’s a group where you can be who you are from wherever you come from, and grow through your fellow photogs. Come, inspire and be inspired, and have lovely interactions with amazing human beings. The walks are interesting and laidback, where you can learn a lot from others if you choose to do so.
