Since I started my post-undergraduate study which in the MFA of Glasgow School of Art. I decided to focus on learn different types of cameras like digital camera, film camera and hand-made camera. The reason is that I did different kinds of art except photography in my undergraduate study. In my exposure to photographic equipment and history, I became more interested in the traditional, handmade part. Recently, I keep using a pin-hole camera to take photos, and combing etching to print pictures. This is called ‘Photopolymer’ and is an absolutely new thing for me.
