The quest for Asian male beauty rests with both the creator and the model. The elusive chemistry that is shared between the artist and the muse, where the potential outcome is nothing less than creation itself.
The Asian Male SeriesThis the first book that started it all in The Asian Male series of photographs. It is called 1.AM. A for Asian and M for Male, not as in the time. It was the first in a series that reflected my interest in creating something tangible. I wanted to hold and feel the essence of my photography in a book form. MORE ON 1.AM
Book 2 in The Asian Male series2.AM is my second publication which came shortly after the release of 1.AM. It contains more pages and guys than my first book. The guys appearing in this book were more international in flavour, with more muscular bodies entering in the picture. MORE ON 2.AM
The 3rd book in the Asian Male seriesAfter a rather long hiatus from 2.AM, I mustered the energy to put together the third book. It was quite a journey moving from a more exploratory level of photography and now integrating some fashion-based elements in collaboration with Patryk Chaou. Nevertheless I tried to maintain a certain integrity within the selection of images that retained much of the spirit that was in the first two books. MORE ON 3.AM
BEAUX - V1 | THE VANITY ISSUE
MAGAZINEThis was my attempt at understanding the business of magazines. Yes, the publication was published, and I thought I could market this to a wider audience of advertisers. I was wrong. Nevertheless, the publication is one of my favourite creations. Featured in Beaux are Derek (a.k.a ‘Milkboy’), Loren and Patrick — who all posed nude during the shoots. MORE ON BEAUX V1
The imagery I have is contained within mystery and darkness, where male sensuality and sexuality is not proudly displayed, but in subtle way. The men with whom I connect with are not the ordinary, but the extraordinary. They are enigmatic, yet real and surreal. This is what I look for.
MOXIE 01 – Three featured models both new and from the past will be showcased in a refreshing ISSUU flippable magazine-styled platform that will accentuate the visual experience of viewing photography of beautiful men. MOXIE will bring a sophisticated yet artsy edge to the way we look at images, which is reminiscent of the way we look at printed magazines and books. As this first issue is experimental, please provide any good or negative feedback, or better yet, become a contributor to the publication or website.
MOXIE 02 features the masculine and sensual Pop Yeung, a Taiwanese man whose brooding looks are captured by Norm Yip. Adam Photography from Indonesia is MOXIE’s first contributor and offers to us Rony, a stunningly handsome man whose hunky body is a feast for the eyes. Have you ever wanted to know how an affluent businessman operates on a daily basis? THE ROSS FILES is just that: a sneak-peek at where he hangs out and who he hob nobs with. Finally, Malaysian model Derek Chong (a.k.a @greendo) and his adorable cat own the cover page. Styled by Patryk Chaou and photographed by Norm Yip.
