19 year-old Megan Leong professes to love photography and writing more than anything else. And it is clear in the way she describes her passions for the former.
While some are left indifferent to the commonplace in life, it doesn’t take much to inspire her. When asked about her sources of inspiration, she cites: “People, stories, places, random words and, of course, procrastination.”
Her strength lies in her belief that she is photographing for herself. “There are times I feel inferior and lousy, because I don’t or can’t take photographs as well as other photographers. Then I remember that I’m not doing anything for them, this is for me. If you keep trying to please other people with your work, you’ll wake up one day spent and exhausted, and realise you haven’t done anything for yourself.”
“Photography is Euphoria to me. Every time I take a shot I really like, I feel like daisies, doves and little white bunnies are bursting out of me. It’s like a moment in time that you’ve taken and placed in a time capsule; forever perfect, forever there. ”
Megan professes her love for street photography, calling every spontaneous portrait a life story captured within the frames of a picture. She also mentions her hope of becoming a photojournalist one day, but lives by the German proverb, “Alles Zu Seiner Zeit”, meaning “all in good time”.
