Special thanks to Branden Choi and Joshua Uhm for guiding me around and providing me a place to stay during the travel.
Home, maybe it is not so familiar, maybe I do look at the place differently as a tourist, after leaving the country, everything left became so vivid as memory. Every travel back home, it is different, it is like collecting fragments back to the huge unfinished puzzle. However, there is always something new, something unfamiliar, that is hinting me either the place or me is changing.
Water has the quality of refracting light, in other words, it distorts images. In the experiment of using waterproof camera to capture distinctive images underwater to present the quality of water.

MOUSTACHE ON STREETS
My intention of street photography is usually finding the diversity in individuals on the street, and I normally do quick snapshot instead of talking to them. This time I challenged myself to find a topic as a guideline for this project, went on the street and talked to people with moustache and took pictures of them.
The post printing work was done with liquid light and watercolour paper through tray processing in darkroom. Liquid light is a medium that simulates darkroom fibre paper. In order to create these images, I painted the liquid light with acrylic paint brush on watercolour paper under safe amber light and dry them in dark. Rest of the process is really similar to regular tray processing. Liquid light allows you to expose images on different surfaces such as aluminum, wood or ceramic, and of course, they require different finishing before applying such as sand blasting or lacquer paint.
