As photographed by Ridduan, designer Justin Chew really brings fashion to life.
The Malaysian photographer gives meaning to street-style ‘visual story telling’.
WHAT exactly gets a photographer going? Why pick up those lenses in the first place? For one street-style snapper, Ridduan Ismail, it is the limitless possibilities of photography that initially drew him into the trade.
“I have always been interested in the work. No matter the direction, concept or subject, it has been a form of creativity that I find myself easily expressing,” says the Kota Baru-born 25-year-old.
When Ridduan took the plunge, he started off as a wedding photographer. That is how his moniker TTFGA (Tukang Tangkap Foto Gembira Anda) came about. At that time, it entailed capturing the happy moments of his subjects.
Ridduan is now, however, more recognised within the fashion circles. His stylish snaps of fashionistas strutting their stuff at trendy events around town are what he is ultimately known for.
