YUME presents ‘APART’ by Derek Hui — featuring Jo Cardenas shot via FaceTime
“In light of recent global events, I think it was a good reminder that art will always be a reflection of society.
As society evolves and adapts to new challenges, so must the creatives behind and in front of the camera.
It was also a very humbling experience to be shown how FaceTime is such an incredible tool and was at my fingertips this entire time.
In hindsight, I think as a photographer I failed to recognise FaceTime as a tool because sometimes as creatives we tend to look down on low fidelity mediums.
I hope this new way to photograph continues even after we’ve overcome the current situation.
It was refreshing and inspiring, and I can’t wait to see what others create through FaceTime.”
