If we keep our eyes open there’s a lot to be seen. It sounds so simple but how many of us are actually really watching? Not just watching things drift by? Not enough it would seem. Otherwise the growing genre of spontaneity based photography wouldn’t be nearly as fascinating. Garry Trinh is one that revels in the extraordinarily ordinary moments that most wander on past, he welcomes the unexpected and the valuable ideas they provide.

Summer Days, Walking was made during long meditative walks along the many rivers, lakes and creeks that snake through our cities and suburbs. I was interested in capturing the unexpected encounters that could be found amongst these neglected spaces.

In the past I have made photographic projects based on strong ideas and concepts. The downside of these types of photographs is they can become very repetitive and predictable. I wanted to keep the ideas behind these new photographs quite abstract and hopefully inspire a spirit of wanderlust and curiosity in viewers.”
