"to see: to be seen" ... (i/iii)

Self-portrait of Anothermountainman (Stanley Wong).

Pao Galleries, Arts Centre, Wanchai, Hong Kong

At the opening ceremony of a recent photo show, "to see: to be seen", curated by Anothermountainman.

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 1/56 second F/1.8 ISO 800 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Well seen :-) and captured. An interesting and wonderful shot. The composition is perfect here and the tone odf color makes a special mood so well corresponding to the self-portrait..of Stanley Wong.

The picture is intriguing. I love how the watching person is perfectly in place in the space left between the picture and the right side of your's.
I love this blue coloured ambiance, too.

Now this is a ridiculously amazing shot. Fantastic stuff Hugo. There's a head missing in the picture and here this head is all so prominent. Great timing and observation. Sorry I've not been able to drop by on your blog - life's taken a different turn :( Hope all good with you. Cheers!

Hugo, I saw this series on your Flickr account - what can I say, you've captured the exhibition better than the artists themselves. Your combination of viewer and art is simply perfect in every way. Well done my friend!
