"I have been working on images in the last few years. Through the camera lens, other than letting my eyes wander along different aspects, wavelengths and spectrums, it has also built up a buffer between my mismatched life and the practical world, allowing my muddled mind to hide at the other side of the lens, not only to provide alternative breathing space but also to let my tensed-up emotions sort out the balance between action and inaction so as to retain a touch of the inner voices in me."
