About Born Free:

There is something powerful by just being at or near the open sea. Standing by the pier admiring the pacific ocean that seems limitless, my brain couldn't help but keep playing the song "born free" in my mind over and over again.

I photographed this scene so that I can look at the open sea every day at home. It is refreshing, inspirational, and therapeutic all at the same time. It especially helps to calm the mind after a long day.

About Yaopey:

Born in Malaysia, I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age. My interest in exploring off the beaten tracks has led me to places such as Tibet, Iran, and Pakistan. While it’s nice to see new places, I have enjoyed the cultural experience of traveling more. I would bring home a piece of local culture from every place I visit, mainly in the form of wall art. 

Maybe you have been to places I have photographed, or seen them elsewhere. I hope, through my work, I can bring a piece of memory or add an artistic touch to your living space.
