Ever since I started working, I have spent more time in front of the camera instead of behind it. I was rummaging through old photos the other day and found these ones, which I took for artist Zhang Yanzi during her artist residency at the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences last summer.
Although a little shy in front of the camera, Zhang was a pleasure to work with and her elegance is easily captured by the lens. Most comfortable in her natural environment – painting of course, I particularly love the calmness captured in these photos, which directly mirrors the artist’s temperament. One year later, Zhang’s exhibition “Essence” is currently on show at the HKMMS. We have definitely come a long way since these photos were first taken, but I do very much enjoy looking back at the journey, while appreciating the moments which started it all.
