“STORY” is an essential element within contemporary photography. A single image can deliver a story on its own or a series of photographs may weave a different tale. A documentation of the everyday, a tale of adventure, a fantasy of our dreams, an epic myth; our imagination is limitless. Photography captures our immediate surroundings but with varied sequencing and combinations, it has the ability to depict something beyond the realm of our reality. It is thus a powerful tool to deliver a message, feelings or thoughts to others. We look forward to hearing your unique “STORY”, opening up the new possibilities of photography.
