Photo: STREET WATCH, 2008 by Layzhoz Yeap

   on a lonely street
   just wandering
   just wondering
   Noone there
   yet not feeling alone
   Something is telling
   Someone is watching
   Wonder who, wonder why
   Is it the street?
   Is it fear?
   Maybe, someone
   Maybe, noone”

“Your portfolio is an intriguing interpretation of the self-portrait in the photography genre. I really like your choice of using the black and white medium and your use of tight composition. I also like how you do not allow the viewer to see your face-that it is hidden. It adds a sense of mystery to you. Your work is very strong and I look forward to seeing it progress even further!”(Marietta Davis, Guest Curator. Artists Wanted)
