Gary Ng: 1+1=3 (Self-published, 2017)

When I began photographing my family and my immediate surroundings in 2013, I was in a state of transition. Studies finished, meeting my wife, got married, having a baby boy, then it comes with responsibilities, duties and struggles. I strongly felt the need to examine the meaning in everyday life by taking snapshots, and that’s how “1+1=3” was born. A cigarette that bears a lipstick traces, a broken egg, an evening landscape, portrait of a pregnant wife, a new born baby, etc are not just the moments of life or a fragment of memories, they are the images questioning the existential issues of human kind.
