Shri is a Chicago based fashion photographer. He studied cinematography and commercial fashion photography at Columbia College Chicago. His work revolves around minimalism and color with a cinematic undertone. Growing up in Penang, a small island just off the coast of east Malaysia, color has been something that he has always been surrounded with and is something he injects into his images. Besides taking inspiration from home and his natural surroundings he also looks at painters such as Matisse and Joan Miro. One can also see some cinematic influences in his work as his other heroes include Fellini, Wong Kar Wai and Gaspar Noé.
