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.
