The world we know today is one full of exciting possibilities each day; it is also one that is increasingly fast-paced and fleeting in nature. The nuances of everyday joys, close-knit relationships and warm smiles are quickly lost in time as we forge ahead with our careers, move across boundaries to new cultures, seek out new friends, new lovers.
Kelvin is passionate for photography as a means to seize these fleeting moments in time and allow for them to be relived. Pictures should evoke innermost emotions while capturing life’s simplest pleasures – be it a baby’s totter, a mother’s tear-rimmed eyes or a lovers’ embrace at the airport. Kelvin’s photos are a reflection of his eye for aesthetic beauty, a journey to find the intimate connection between people, nature and emotions. It is this connection that makes each click all worthwhile, and that allows a vivid replay of that moment in time. This is Kelvin’s style.
“A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is thereby a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.”
- Ansel Adams (1902-1984)
The old adage goes, “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Kelvin took a leap of faith in 2013 to pursue photography – one that started out as a hobby in 2008 with a SGD 400 Canon PowerShot S3IS but quickly evolved into a passion. Kelvin’s deep interest lies in the creation of interesting, dynamic and heartwarming pictures. Photography has, and continues to, let him build an affinity for sincerity in humans and develop an appreciation for his surroundings, finding the true beauty within. Before taking that leap, Kelvin spent several years in banking. It did take him several years to realize that time and tide wait for no man, but as another adage goes, “Better late than never!”
Why Kelvin 'Luffs'?
‘Kelvin Luffs’ has been Kelvin’s online moniker since the beginning of the Internet. "Luffs" sounds like "laughs", and perhaps also "loves" - the two great things that make Kelvin happy!
