The Depth of Life propels the viewer into a personal journey of someone who is reaching out to freedom and dreams, making personal choices, safeguarding secrets and coming out of the comfort zone to face new challenges and have new experiences.

My main objective during the beginning stage of conceptualising was to create a series of images that were fundamental to what we experience in our lives. It is a series whereby almost everyone can relate to by being in that situation at some point in time. In this series, the concepts are carefully blended with levitation photography.
The human mind sees things in slow-motion when it is undergoing stress, as though time is slowing down. This was carefully taken into account when creating the series.

I am greatly inspired by Brookeshaden, a photographer who specialises in creating surreal concepts by using the concept of levitation. Hence, I took on a challenge to experiment with a
new technique for this series and to enhance the vision of the concepts.

The Depth of Life is a series of works created for the NOISE TAP Exhibition Showcase 2012.

Goodness! A DD! Thank you so much! I received a few comments about the hole in one of the pigeons and the shadow. I have taken that into account and re-edited the photograph. Thanks for noticing it:)

Great photo. Love the concept. However, the cuts and bruises should have been a bit more subtle. It looks too unrealistic. I understand that the legs were in motion, so the injuries had to be more pronounced so they could be seen. Either way, the legs should have been more in focus.
Also, the outlets on the bottom really should be digitally removed. It's a bit distracting.
But it's a great photo overall.

Thank you for your comment and critiques. I was told by my mentor to blur the legs to create motion. I agree with you on the outlets one and the fact that the injuries could have been more obvious. Anyhow, thanks once again and I will take this into consideration for my future works! Have a good day:)

Aw, well thank YOU for taking it so well and replying! Don't take my comment as me not liking the photo. It was just a bit of constructive criticism. It really is a great photo, and I wish I could take one like this.
