Recently, I read somewhere that school is more than academics, it is about learning how to deal with the harshness of life and overcoming adversities and making friends and perhaps that is true. As the photographer, I wanted to convey the message that school is "More Than Academics" through the friendship, the dedication seen in these photos.
The first photograph is mostly covered by raindrops on a window pane and is in black and white. This was taken on the train and through this photograph, I wish to convey the message that no matter how arduous, how painful our journey can be, we should continue living and keep on going. The train never stops, even if it rains, and I feel that we should never stop trying as well.
This photograph has no intended purpose and should be interpreted by the audience.
Being rather introverted, I don't have many friends and with that comes the title of "Loner" and being picked the last for any group work. Friends to me are a privilege as I don't come by them very often and thus I should learn to cherish them. Perhaps with time, this may change and I may have many friends, however unlikely that may be. Current friends may be less than strangers in the future, thus, photography to me is a way that i can remember them and the wonderful memories we had together.
There is only darkness as there is light. What i mean is that everything in life needs to have a balance and to achieve that balance is crucial part of life, and how I show this through the above photographs is by showing a light source (the Sun) and the silhouettes that form because of it.
