Last weekend’s KLue Urbanscapes 2009, the city’s all-day creative arts festival held at KLPac (Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center). Although I’ve heard many things about KLPac from friends, but this was my first time to KLPac.
The place blows my mind away. Situated at Sentul, which is in the middle of busy KL city, but once you are inside you will loose all notions that you are still in the busy hectic cosmopolitan city known as Kuala Lumpur. On the way in, you are greeted with beautiful greenery landscapes, clear lake and an old A’ Famosa colonial-esque building. KLPac with its huge spaces of greenery is perfect for events such as this.
KLue Urbanscapes 2009 on the other hand was a kaleidoscope of sights, scenes and sounds. It is as if all of the city’s creative communities gathered at KLPac and do their thing. Also it seems as if everybody in KL who has Digital-SLR or Analog cameras are there at KLPac, Urbanscapes. All kind of camera was present. Everybody all trigger happy, including myself.
I've photographed this city many times in the past—in color, black and white, and even in redscale. One day in March, the streets of Manila once again became my subject. Only this time, they turned into otherworldly places as the LomoChrome Turquoise drastically shifted its colors...at least on film.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.

I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
