Songs for Sorrow #02

Photographer's Name: 
Ben Ali Ong

Image from my  body of work "Songs for Sorrow", inspired by 11th Century poet and astronomer Omar Khayyams, in particular the poem; 

the idols I have loved so long,

have done my credit in this world much wrong,

have drowned my glory in a shallow cup,

and sold my reputation for a song.

Festival Year: 
2010
