Illuminating The Indistinct

By Lydia Ho

It is generally accepted that abstract art refers to works which are the artist’s inspiration and imagination.

In photography, an optical image is an abstraction from the natural world, a selected and isolated fragment which is captured by the lens.

My series, “Illuminating the indistinct” captures the beauty in detail, which is otherwise easily missed in the everyday life. These abstract images imply a world outside the limits encompassed by my lens.

Lydia is a passionate photographer who enjoys creating art and develops her creativity with her camera. As a musician and lover of harmonic composition, Lydia’s artistic awareness and inquisitiveness often trigger her creative impulse which are noticeably displayed in her body of work, especially in street, portraiture and abstract photography. 

Lydia’s photography approach in photography is rather unique. She dares to be different. Innovative and creative with her own ideas and perspectives, she creates images often beyond imagination. Her work was recognised by Prix De La Photographie Paris (PX3), International Photography Award (IPA) and National Geographic, amongst others. Her images have been featured in three solo exhibitions organised by Leica Camera Malaysia. Her journey with Leica began in 2016 with a Leica Q, soon upgraded to Leica M (Type 262), M10 and M10-R and has good experience using SL2 to discover new inspiration creating exhibits for the series, “Illuminating the Indistinct”.
