A new wound everyday
Have You ever felt trapped in a maze, slowly falling apart? Taken inspiration from the movie Triangle, the idea of Samsara from Buddhism, as well as many paintings depicting wars, I created this image that depicted the daily struggle many of us had and the psychology toll it took on us. I used the head bandage as a symbolism for mental health issues, and the naked body to reflect that such issues were deeply personal and many people felt ashamed talking about them.
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.
