It's all about duality: back to back, hard line against soft curve, familiar rigid body form against free flowing unpredictable tossing fabrics, drowning against soaring, body against soul. After tossing hundreds of times, I start to see faces and body parts in the fabrics. Is it just an optical illusion, or is it just in my head? In the series, I chose fabrics to photograph spirit physically and metaphorically. I lost one of my family member few years ago, and to this date it still feels like a strange experience, as if no one ever passed away.
Author: My name is William Ye and I am a 26-year-old self-taught portrait and fine art photographer based in Toronto, Canada. My passion for fine art photography ignited 3 years ago, under the influences of famous contemporary artists and photographers of our generation, such as Annie Leibovitz, Erwin Olaf, Julia Hetta, Jennifer Thoreson (formerly Jennifer Hudson) and to name a few. Since then, I worked hard to form my own photographic style and develop my own photographic vision, which ultimately rewarded me with several photography awards in IPA, Px3, MIFA and One Eyeland. My favourite subjects are psychology, emotions and feelings. I cannot literally photograph them as they are highly abstract, non-visual and intangible concepts, so instead, I try to photograph the various imageries associated with these concepts to translate something abstract into tangible visuals.
