We hurt ourselves.Most of the time, without consciously knowing what we were thinking or doing.We think of ourselves badly when we make mistakes.We blame ourselves when accidents happen.We feed ourselves unhealthy food because of stress.We give the wrong people our love or attention when they don’t deserve it.We think we are fat when our tummy sticks out, with no thigh gap or having flappy fat arms.These thoughts hurt us. I don’t just see myself in the image, I see the women I know in the image. The finger is going to touch the sharp tip of the glass……why would you… Read More »Broken Glasses 2

“What have you done?!”“You’re so clumsy!”“I’ve told you to be careful!” Have you ever accidentally broken some glasses? If you have, those comments might sound familiar to you.Usually, breaking glasses is not something people would do intentionally. We did it by accident and sometimes we get the blame, or we blame ourselves for not being careful.What if you break glasses purposely? For people like me who don’t normally do it, it did make me feel it’s something terrible and I shouldn’t be doing.I remember watching Adele’s music video “Rolling in the deep.” I was so impressed and stunned by the… Read More »The Broken Glasses 1
This image ” I see you”, is part of the exhibition collection at Canon Malta, Avantech in San Gwann. In this image, I want to show the essence of the emotion and atmosphere is more, much more important than the clothing. There is only one piece of fabric wrapped around the waist, so basically, the clothing is not the major impact. In this image, it’s the look, the pose, the way she holds herself, and the way she looks, that is fearless. She was merely looking into you, into the viewers’ eyes. It’s something I love so much about the… Read More »I See You
This is the one of the images I exhibit at Canon Malta, the title is “The Visible Personification of Absolute Perfection”, it is a self-portrait. I know what you are thinking, the body is not perfect like the title. I want to share a story with you, my personal story. From all these years I photograph women. Woman in all ages, all sizes and shapes. I asked majority of them one questions, one question before the photo shoot, “What parts of your body, you feel particularly conscious about, the parts you don’t like, it doesn’t matter where it is if… Read More »The Visible Personification of Absolute Perfection
5 years ago, a client reviewed my work, “Her method somehow reminds me a bit of the concept of Michelangelo carving the extra stone away from the already-exisiting soul of the sculpture.” I’m over 40. When I look at this self-portrait, I am curious how I would look like when I’m 50 and I look forward to it. It empowers me, gives me motivation to exercise regularly to stay in shape. I feel I’m at my most confident status. I accept myself and how I look, I couldn’t accept it when I was younger. As a woman over 40, I… Read More »Greeted, Michelangelo
This image “New Beginning” to me it’s like an ultrasound scan, a human inside the womb, a newborn and a life beginning. When I was creating this image, I was going through an internal transition, a shift, a revolution. I’ve evolved from different life experiences and this is one of the major ones. After the dramatic pressure and push, like the birth, I across to the other side, I started to breath the fresh air. It’s a new beginning.
