An analogy that’s often used is if you give a monkey a typewriter and enough time, it will eventually produce the complete works of Shakespeare. This same principle can be applied to photography. By capturing a multitude of random images, you’re bound to find something that appears intentional, stunning, or both.
Edas Wong, a Hong Kong-based street photographer and graduate of UMIST in Manchester, England, is a master at discovering these hidden gems. While his shots may be spontaneous, they are still remarkable. It’s incredible how a fortuitous perspective can evoke metaphors, juxtapositions, and a sense of visual poetry. It demonstrates that, at times, it’s better to let fate take the wheel.
Unlike most photographers who plan their shots to perfection, Edas Wong relies on his intuition and fortune. He wanders the streets, searching for anything that might pique his interest. His playful photographs cleverly incorporate the foreground and background, resulting in stunning, thought-provoking images that inspire and captivate.
