Garry Trinh uses photography to capture unexpected and spontaneous moments in daily life and to express his personal ideas. He is perplexed by the perception of artists as coffee-drinking loafers who work whenever they feel like it. He doesn’t even drink coffee. His photographs are about a way of looking at the world, to reveal magic in the mundane. He hopes his photographs are read not just seen. He is never bored and never late.
