Extreme Beauty

"Photography gives me a medium to escape from daily routine life by creating something beautiful"

In Extreme Beauty from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 137, Fashion photographer Apple Chua shares in depth how she turned her passion into her career. She pushed the boundary of incorporating her hobby of hiking volcanoes into her commissioned works to create photos that comprised an epic and cinematic composition of colors, glamour, elegance, and whimsical femininity that is coupled with a futuristic look and inspirations from the renaissance era. That certain elusive quality became her signature style.
