Ramillies Street is one of those brick alleys that every building turns its back on. It is a service space, dark, a little dank, inhabited by the hum of air-conditioning units and the rattle of bins and delivery trolleys.

Defining style, and finding your own | Ming Thein - Photographer

Defining style, and finding your own | Ming Thein - Photographer | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

Introduction: This has been one of, if perhaps not the most difficult essay to write so far: it concerns a topic that’s fundamentally important for all serious photographers, yet is extremely difficult to define in a strict technical sense due to its very nature. It’s the only essay I’ve had to stop and start writing several times because I penned myself into a corner. What you read is the culmination of many sessions and days of work. I hope you find it useful.
