Time To Rush Home
This image was captured in an environment with expression of muslim people after they completed the congregation of the Bishwa Ijtema at Tongi, Bangladesh. One of the main transportation for the people to leave this place is train. Railway station is the place that tells us good stories and provides many different variety of composition for photography. During the assignment, expressions of people is the main target to be photographed. People hardly grab tickets for travelling home. They tired and have many belongings needed to carry. However, the demand of public transportation cannot be fulfilled. The railway authority can't even restrict people from sitting on the roof of the train. People helping each other with smiles on their faces showing joy and peace in their hearts. Little boys take opportunity to sell bottled water and snacks. I hope these people can be safe in their journey.
David Nam Lip LEE MALAYSIA
I am David Nam Lip LEE, born on 2 May, 1976, in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Sabah is a state of Malaysia, and we also called it as Land Below the Wind because it lies below the typhoon belt. I completed my primary and secondary study in my hometown. I did my undergraduate studies major in construction management and economics at Curtin University of Technology, Australia. After the graduation, I worked as a manager in a seafood restaurant at my hometown.
I love photography since I was eighteen years old. I hardly gain knowledge about photography because it was a costly hobby on those days. My loves to capture images never change but I dont know how good my images were. I joined my first photography workshop in 2014, which organized by Mr. Danny Yen Sin WONG. He guided me from a snapshot photographer to become an artist who active in international competition and exhibition.
My passion to photography has changed my view to the world. I travel to different countries, and documented my exploration by camera. I love to photograph human interest and cultural of people. As a wildlife photographer, I learn how to respect the mother-nature and behavior of animals. Continuous learning and gain advises from experienced photographers have improved my skills and knowledge. I know I need a new direction for my photography dream. My goal is to show people with images that can warm their hearth.
