Titled ‘Ode to Life’, the exhibition presents a raw, intimate series of life and its ‘great mundanity’, as captured by eponymous founder, photography enthusiast and agency director Helena Ma’s past decade living in Europe and Asia.
Through this palette-rich manifesto of faces and silhouettes, Ma investigates the emotions and mystery that are lost in the mundanities of everyday life. Shot against the familiar background of Asian cities, it is a powerful medley of light and texture, where spontaneous moments reveal ordinary life from an unusual perspective. Tapping into the natural, human curiosity, the intimate photographs challenges the jaded mind to appreciate everyday encounters with art, love and compassion, in this modern world.
Born and raised in China, Ma is an emerging photographer with a career spanning five countries: South Korea, China, Sweden, UK and Singapore. Since she picked up her first professional camera at the age of 20, the self-taught enthusiast has pursued her passion for photography extensively in the last decade, especially through her travels.
