Green Friends

November 03, 2017

The past week and a half has been a slow one for me– I’ve just moved back to Hong Kong and trying to make my space mine again. That deep pang of “why the hell did I think about owning/buying/keeping this?” Although I do have an exciting job lined up, HR processing tests my patience, and on top of that, I got a pretty serious gash in my leg from bouldering a week ago. With all that, I am, for the most part, confined at home. 

It’s frustrating feeling like I’m waiting for my life to actually start, so the most exciting thing for me now is watering my plants every morning. As my art professors have always told me, just make what you can with the studio space you have, if it’s a warehouse or a desk in your bedroom. So, I recruited my green friends as models today, somewhat inspired by the botanical photography by Imogen Cunningham and Karl Blossfeldt. Enjoy!
