I started street photography in 2014, I like street photography because I can take photographs of the street and people’s facial expressions. I will not call out to them, I will take the look of their expressions as it is. Everyday I participate in lens culture, IPA, 1x etc. Recently, I started to take portraits.
I cut off the changing moment in Tokyo and I stopped the time with the flash.
I am Dolly Ave, a Vietnamese-American storyteller based in Los Angeles, CA. Photography began at an early age when I picked up a camera to document my constant chance in residency. It was my way of holding onto the people I loved as I would move. My love for still and moving image grew into creating a more romanticized version of what I captured. I enjoy creating scenes and different depictions of people.
This series represents fluidity. In society we are limited by being labeled and confined in a box. However just like the various environments we find my subject, Ciayo in, he (as all of us) are able to be more than one thing. Being human is to remain complex, fluid, and undefined by your race, environment, and pursuits.
