Picking up his first DSLR in the early months of 2014, Carroll Apiez has been transfixed ever since. Determined to follow his childhood dreams of pursuing the arts, he enrolled in a series of classes in Malaysia that ultimately led him to his first ever travel series.
“I decided to travel to Guilin, because I think it is a location that quite rare for tourists to visit. My mentor during my photography course wanted me to be exposed to the travel and photojournalism style of photography.“
The experience has left a clear mark on Carroll, an almost surreal mix of tradition and painterly surroundings. For Carroll, travel not only broadens the mind but also tests a photographer’s finesses as well. Being thrown into a whole new environment with only his Nikon, the picturesque scenery has become a crucial part of developing his style and craft.
