The ModFab Gallery: Anagnorisis Edition

PhotoBlog of the Week:
Anagnorisis / "Docked for the Day"

Now here's a puzzler: when I asked Kamarul, the photographer behind the vivid landscapes and colorful urban portraits of Anagnorisis, to talk about the work, the reply was an intriguing answer straight out of Griffin and Sabine. "The site was born out of my frustrations with certain events that unfolded in 2005," Kamarul replied. "It was the thing that keeps me going and give me some semblance of sanity. While I try to capture things that capture my imagination, they are also full of cryptic messages (to certain individuals which I am not even sure understand it!), clues and “reminders to self” of that particular moment in time. This actually explain why sometimes the photos and descriptions are seemingly disjointed, but honestly, there are deeper meanings to it." Can you figure out the hidden meanings? I'm utterly fascinated!
