'Lensafesto' of a documentary
People often open themselves to a camera in their desire to make a
connection with other human beings. My work has always been a
privileged touch to the lives of others and a process of learning to
understand the human conditions. Through photography, I have learnt to
connect and participate, yet step back at times to let some poignant
moments speak. In a world inundated with visual imagery,
I believe the
traditional photograph can still inform, inspire and influence. - Tiet
