Trevor Yeung, ‘The Saddest Sunset (La Perouse)’, 2016, Blindspot Gallery

Three photography works titled The Saddest Sunset that evoke memories of a past love affair. The Saddest Sunset deliberately avoids the decisive moments that people love to capture, but encapsulates the moment that precede and the one that follows the sunset. The photographs illuminate manmade traces that have been washed by sunlight and ultraviolet. While the nature of ‘That has been’* of photography cannot be worn away, the memories of the moment captured are lost like the colours in a faded photograph.
