Lydia is a passionate photographer who enjoys creating art and developing her creativity with her camera. As a musician and lover of harmonic composition, Lydia’s artistic awareness and inquisitiveness often trigger her creative impulse which are noticeably displayed in her body of work, especially in street, portraiture and abstract photography.
Lydia’s photography approach in photography is rather unique. She dares to be different. Innovative and creative with her own ideas and perspectives, she creates images often beyond imagination.
Her journey with Leica began in 2016 with a Leica Q, soon upgraded to Leica M (Typ 262), M10 and M10-R.
Her work was recognized by Prix De La Photographie Paris (PX3), International Photography Award (IPA) and National Geographic, amongst others. Her images have been featured in three solo exhibitions organized by Leica Camera Malaysia.
“I enjoy creating images with a Leica M because it is simple to use and has no superfluous functions. Leica M demands more from the photographer to think, visualise and to take control of the camera.
With Leica M, you make pictures, not taking pictures.”
