The foundation of the minds eye is the starting point of it all.
Drawing Inspiration from his predecessors - Roy DeCarava, Robert Frank, and Garry Winogrand, Rain is a student of every day life experience ands skilfully chronicles the poetic nuances of daily life. Capturing the gritty essence of the streets; its people in movement on foot and on public transportation, he transmutes the seemingly mundane into expressive lyrical social commentary.
Part photo journalist, part poetic memoir, his work is inspired by his life experiences and finding the image within the image.
"There is one thing the photo must contain: the humanity of the moment."
