Hyperrealist & Sociopolitical Photographer

Witness Of Struggling Humanity

I’m particularly interested in two subjects – Religious society and Civil society. Religion is the oldest social phenomenon in human civilization that is still influential in modern society. We cannot explain history without referring to religion and it’s an interesting fact that religion still plays a vital role in sociopolitical behaviors. On the other hand, I have philosophical questions about human life that is a complex form of sociopolitical elements.

In order to express my interests, I intend to create a new sense of reality with the illusion of manipulated images though more meticulous. For this reason, I focus much more of its emphasis on details and the subjects with the use of additional, often subtle, pictorial elements to create the illusion of a reality which in fact either does not exist or cannot be seen by the human eye.

Furthermore, I try to incorporate emotional, social, cultural, and political thematic elements as an extension of the visual illusion to create a tangible solidity and physical presence through subtle lighting and shading effects.

As a Hyperrealist and Sociopolitical photographer, I simulate and improve upon precise photographic images to produce optically convincing visual illusions of reality, often in a social or cultural context. Thematically, I aggressively confronted the corrupted human condition through narrative images as a phenomenological medium.
