In photography, even simple things and scenes can become meaningful. The objects, places, people around us all have meaning to our lives, and each of us sees them uniquely.

If real life could be like old movies, everyday would probably look like this. The vintage aesthetic is a coveted one, and sa-man has perfected this by applying these qualities to their daily life. Expired films, especially black-and-white, are part of their creative arsenal to form their visually poetic gallery. Even in their color photographs, the vintage aesthetic persists as they often opt for a rustic, worn-out vibe.
