I have been going through my old photographs published on this blog to construct a coherent photo story to tell. That process of editing is going to take some time, and as curating a large body of work is never easy. Nonetheless, I was inspired by recent photography friends, such as Raja Indra Putra who painstakingly spent a lot of effort and time to shoot and arrange his photographs in consistent and cohesive themes. My first attempt of such categorization was in my recent series "red" where I found plenty of dominant red photographs which was an irony because red has always been the colour I tried very hard to avoid.
"Three" is another rare occurrence, since I normally have very simple rules for composition: one subject with one plain background. One story, or one idea to get across. I understand that strong photographs are much more complex than this, and I should push myself to evolve beyond simplicity as my main philosophy in photography. Nevertheless, it was a fun process finding all the "three" photographs and believe it or not, NONE of these photographs were planned or arranged in any manner, I merely spotted and found them as they were. I think that is the beauty of photography, both in the sense that you can choose to create a photograph entirely out of your own visualization, or the complete opposite, you go and find opportunities and shoot them.
