When I first started experimenting with black and white photography, it was to save photos with bad colours.

Over time, I learned how to pay more attention to lighting contrast and take black and white photos natively from the camera instead of creating it in post editing.

I embraced the light.

It was photographers like Mari (IG: @mari_mk28) and the legendary Fan Ho who had inspired me through their works.

They showed me even in the void of colours, a photo could have so much soul.

Here are some of my works that I would like to share with you:

Turned this into black and white to conceal the horrible colours in the original photo. Xiao Long Bao, Shanghai (2018).

Waited ten minutes for someone to walk by. Shanghai (2018).
