For being the featured Photographer of the Month December 2011 in Photomalaysia.com
His simplicity is simply poetic.
Quote...... "......4. Don’t worry about trends. A lot of photographers, especially art students, get caught up in the whole concept of getting things done to be hip and edgy and making these pictures as shocking as they can.” I think that’s just a really lame cop out from photographers who are insecure about their work. Don’t get me wrong. If an artist has a valid reason for making shocking pictures, that’s fine, but don’t do without a good reason. (and, “I want to stand apart from the others and be noticed”., is NOT a good reason). Likewise, there is nothing wrong with “pretty” pictures. Whoever said there was too much beauty in the world? The main point is to know why you are making your photographs....."
well said !!

Inspiring examples of minimalist photography from Thomas Leong | The D-Photo
...and not the first time too ......... Thomas you should really consider hosting some of your images at an art gallery to see if you should actually quit your regular job and do this full time
Grats Thomas... I had thought you much older somehow...
