I have known Kelly for a while now and this is not the first time I have shot her. But I think we have both grown. This is a portrait of her. I will be posting dance pictures of her soon.

Low Kah Wei - Survivor



My friend Kah Wei was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. She had an operation to remove a breast and then underwent a course of chemotherapy. I wanted to take her portrait while she was undergoing chemotherapy but I caught a persistent cold was unable to do it. Recently, I finally managed to take the portrait as we are both better. In the greater scheme of things, I am happy to have been able to take her portrait now. It is a period in which the joy of life is real.

As much as I enjoy shooting nudes and art photographs, I do feel that this type of portraiture is important to me too. For it is work grounded in life, the common experience. It need not be as dramatic as a recovering cancer patient either. I think it would be great just to make portraits of the people who live in HDB, to get a glimpse of who they are. I see a lot of photographs of HDB flats, but I so seldom see the people in them.
