About the Book
An exploration of an abstract conception. To unveil, if possible, a non-objectivity to the supposed literal and objective image. In this we might find an ethereal space devoid of spatial and temporal reference, a location of dislocation, the 'stream' of time frozen over. So that we may understand without past or future, beyond the finitude of the visual territory.
Or, if you should desire to, some pictures and words.
Ryan Choy finds a certain release in the photographic action but often this comes second to the enjoyment of exploration that precedes this. Exploration, then, becomes synonymous to photography; both seek a novelty beyond the structured everyday; of a moment where reality becomes transferable to the medium of the image. Ryan was awarded "Young photographer of the year" by New Zealand Geographic in 2009.
