"Art illuminates the soul of an artist". Photography is a vehicle for an artist to communicate personal inspirations and experiences. No landscape, scenery, or architecture is ordinary if it provokes a reaction from the viewer - a memory, an emotion, or a spiritual connection. If the composition of the subject(s) touches my heart, then I can perceive a beautiful outcome. Furthermore, the image must possess dynamic energy that animates the audience. My philosophy towards my work can be summarized by Buddha's wisdom, "Your work is to discover your work, and then, with all your heart, to give yourself to it."
