For the year 2010, the year of the tiger, WWF will be running this tiger conservation campaign. With the aim of doubling the number of tigers by 2022, hence the concept of TX2.
I was involved with the roadshows being set up in colleges to promote the campaign and its Tiger Trex campaign. So I was asked to put up an example of a photo essay.
A photo essay is a simple set/compilation of photos where every single photograph will contribute in telling a main story. Which means the photographs will not stand up as individual ones but rather being a part of the story.
This is what i came up with and this is the story i'm telling about the tigers in the wild now:
"Being two different words in the Cantonese dialect which are ‘Lou Fu’ (Tiger) and ‘Fu’ (Bitter), this compilation portrays the fate and journey of the tigers in their path towards extinction"
