Ophelia.

let me drown
in this dream
so it wouldn't hurt

to remember
to forget
everything


I was introduced to Selia during Alamode Night in April when I was in Tokyo. He was soft-spoken, gentle, kind and very very elegant.

We did the shoot 2 days later just before I came back to Singapore. Much of it was done without much words for we couldn't really communicate. Yet, somehow, in the silence, we moved in synchronicity.

Amazing photo as always~ So, I'll introduce myself. I'm Julia, and I've been a fan of your photography for a long time on deviantART. After I read your deviantART interview, I decided to get my own DSLR, and I just wanted to thank you for giving out all your advice regarding photography! You're so inspirational to me, and everytime I look at your photos, it motivates me to try harder and to be the best I can be as an artist/photographer. I just started reading your blog last night and I throughly enjoyed reading each of your entries and I was surprised at how easily I could relate to you! Anywho, I'll be keeping up with all your blog entries from now on! : D

Just how I expected an encounter with Mr. Selia to be~ Except for some reason I expected big hugs, lol.

Yes people, that's a man. -.-" And the language he speaks is Japanese sir riverstyx.

Awesome.

(instead of the comment)I lived near the sea and the river and earlier often saw on coast of a body of drowned man...When I see similar photos I recollect a smell of a decaying body...(i'm sorry)
