“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.”
- Diane Arbus
Phyllis Wong, the mysterious woman behind the lens has never failed to realise my vision. Oh, who's Phyllis? She is the person responsible for capturing the essence of Fred and Ginger and Macondo's Clothesline in still images. We've collaborated together on more than one occasion, sworn to kill each other, we serve as each other's muse.
It feels good when you find a true collaborator, it's kinda like a marriage (for lack of a better word) but without the sexy times. Errr..umm that is a marriage. Anyway, I digress. I am super excited because during the week long run of Fred and Ginger Phyllis' photographic works will be exhibited at The Old 505 Theatre foyer/lounge room area. This crazy sought-after photographer is leaving to HK wuaaaah : ( and I am going to miss her so. But, we'll always have Paris :)
The Journey of Fred and Ginger, Photographic exhibition by Phyllis Wong
Sharing the fondness of absurdity with Artistic director Alicia González, Phyllis Wong (Phyllis Photography) used photography and visual arts as a media to present the concept and Fred and Ginger. Alongside with the development of Fred and Ginger, Phyllis Wong joined the journey by documenting its creation in form of photographic art.
“Diane Arbus, a big influence on my work, her works examined subject’s relevance to the society, her works subtly express the feelings of uncertainty and alienation. This series of work explored the characters of Fred and Ginger. Through Diane Arbus’ works, I understand the importance of the relationship between the photographer and the subject/ character. Knowing the subject/character is an investment that enriches the contents and emotions of a photograph; as a result it elevates it as an artform.”
Phyllis’ photographic works will be exhibited at The Old 505 Theatred during the season of Fred and Ginger.
