The Freedom collection is a series of three images captured for the 2016 Emerging Photographers Award. They feature a rare breed of Siamese Fighting Fish, which is named after its ‘Elephant Ears’.
The first image in the series won the 2016 SunStudios Photography Award.
I find watching fish and any form of wildlife to be really cathartic, especially when it's combined with listening to music. While taking photos of this fish, I thought about the myth that fish only have a three-second memory. This made me think about the freedom that would exist in a world where humans had a memory that only lasted three-seconds. I thought of a world free of hatred, free of violence and one that is filled with beauty. There is so much beauty in this world and these images remind me of that.
