May is an interesting individual. She moved to Hong Kong in rather unexpected circumstances; not intentionally but by chance while traveling across China.
Her approach to photography is not distant from that to life – experimental, spontaneous, focused on the moment. She does not intend to be a photographer and doesn’t like to be called one either. While using a camera as a tool, she hopes photography and digital manipulation can materialise thoughts, emotions, fictionary moments that can only come to existence when produced as an image. There is no style, no theme or any special meaning in her work. She insists, it does not aim to inspire either. 'Just look at the image and take whatever resonates with you', she says.
Her personal collection ‘TSH’ for Bamboo Scenes, is very significant. It marks the end of an era in her life. What’s been before is just a mere memory, as distorted and biased as photography itself. All pictures show a female body contrasted with the city’s urban structures.
