We have the privilege of having two folks gracing our studio as part of a 60th birthday family photography session arranged by their daughter.

There is this sense of admiration towards these experienced folks, who have been through so much more, who seems larger than life.

These folks, who live in a time where sophisticated technology still did not quite exist. Them who appreciate personal and genuine connections, who hold the importance of family gathering, togetherness and everything done with what we’d familiarly know as the ‘kampong’ spirit.

Something real. Something that is quite lacking in this day and age among the younger generation who seeks solace not among other human but gadgets, apps, technology.

Chinua Achebe once said that, “I think back to the old people I knew when I was growing up, and they always seemed larger than life.”

And they are. LARGER than life itself.

We hope to see more of these folks in our studio.
