Jino Lee Captures the different Faces of Asia
From the ancient temples of Bali to the rivers of Mongolia, Jino Lee travels far and wide to photograph locals and their way of life.
“People are the heart and soul of a place, not the landscape, and Asia is very rich in culture – even simple daily activities are so diverse and colourful,” says Singaporean photographer Jino Lee, whose images capturing tableaus of life in Asia appear in these pages.
Thirteen years ago, Lee was immersed in a very different dimension – music, audio engineering and a night owl existence. Then he picked up his first camera and found his mojo snapping vignettes of life while travelling. It’s kept him on the move ever since, even as his portfolio has expanded to include resorts and interiors photography.
Lee’s next stop: Kerala and then to Pushkar for the annual camel fair. His observation: “Much of Asian traditions and culture are starting to vanish, I want to capture them before they are gone.”
