Click to zoom 5am (soft cover) photo book cover

"5 am" is a long term documentary photography project where the author photographed at around 5 O'Clock in the morning wherever he traveled. This eight year long project became a story about monumental and eternal daily routine. Or as the author says:

“Around 5 a.m. there exists a subtle moment when the day chases its tail. Laborers are off to work; party–goers are finding their way home.

In the wee hours, ambiguity rages between night and day, light and dark, predator and prey, mind and instinct, life and death. This surreal relationship between contrasts seems to linger in what is just the blink of an eye.”
