Artist Talk: Sarah Choi

2014-10-24_15-21-43

I recently had the great pleasure in hosting an event at work for our in house Photography Community of enthusiasts. As the Community Manager for this group I reached out to some of my network of contacts to investigate any opportunities for a guest speaker to come in and give us a talk, a show n’ tell so to speak, and I’m planning on running a number of these throughout the next year.

The first Artist Talk was given by street photographer Sarah Choi who hails from Seoul, Korea, but now lives in Hong Kong. Sarah only started seriously with Photography in July 2013 but since then has gone on to be recognised with an award in the LensCulture Emerging Talents 2014 – one of 50 photographers chosen from thousands of applicants. This is a phenomenal position to be in and the award comes with a showcase exhibition in Barcelona, inclusion in a printed book, and much media and critic attention. But not only that, in those short months, Sarah has also been featured in a number of online magazines including National Geographic, with a promise of an inclusion in a future issue of the paper based magazine.

For me, Sarah’s work is all about light leading to shadow, about rythym and connections between people and the street. Colour is a also key element, but what is amazing is the way Sarah previsualises the shot. She has an amazing talent for this, and a gut instinct second to none.  Sarah says herself that her work is “like music without sound. I try to catch the best moment of that connection and develop new sound in the photography“. I’d say that this street photographer has well and truly emerged!

The presentation went down really well with the group who commented things like “I’ll never look at MY street the same again” and “Sarah is so inspiring and full of love for her subject, what a joy to be able to see her work.”

You can check out some of Sarah’s work on her website www.sarahchoiphotography.com or catch up on Google+ or FaceBook Page.

BeDoubleYou is Busy Blurbing Away

Well I have been busy in the evenings sorting out some of my latest ideas, and I would invote you to come along and take a look. It’s all about photobooks. I’ve started publishing to Blurb, and now have two on there. I will in time be adding more and getting more adventurous with them. First though I tried my hand at “Planner” and “Notebook”.

Planneris a 134 page, 2015 Week to a Page Diary with BeDoubleYou Travel Photography in between each month, and on the cover. If you go for the hardback and sleeved version then you get more BeDoubleYou for your buck.

Notebook is a high quality Blurb produced photo notebook (15 x 23cm) with 100 pages of lined notebook paper. With no specific order and no specific meaning they are laid out as randomly as they were taken, and portray a depth and variety of texture light and shadow. From the light and airy spacious expanses of urban glass, to the ancient and rusting artifacts of a bye-gone steam age. From simple bokeh light reflections to architectural studies in black and white, there’s something for everyone on display throughout this notebook to help with contemplation, spark an idea or entertain the mind.
