In the seventh month of Lunar calendar, the Chinese community in Penang, Malaysia celebrates the Hungry Ghost Festival. Many believed that during this period the gate of hell is lifted spirits are free to roam the earth seeking for food and entertainment. I took this photo series at a ritual ceremony, where devotees offered prayers to the “大士爺“。 (Leica M, 21mm Elmarit-M, click on the photo for full resolution)

Vibrant Yellow

L1003255

Recently I had the opportunity to photograph a Hindu ritual event at my hometown. The devotees were wearing bright colour outfits, especially bright yellow clothes. Under the bright morning sunlight, it created a vibrant an colourful surroundings. I have been planning on my personal project of shooting a series of street photos with the motives and subjects of “Vibrant Yellow”. I managed to get a few keeper out of this shooting occasion.
