I am an architecture and urban researcher who’s been experimenting the art of photography for almost a decade. I have over 9 years professional experience, and qualifications in research, architecture, urban design and spatial planning. Photography has been a way of seeing the world for me. As an experimental photographer I am just trying to click the shutter to delve into my surroundings regardless of paths and styles of photography. As an architect and urban designer, I’ve always been fascinated by the notion of ‘city’ and what it contains, most importantly, the cause of its existence: people.
