This series represents YONGL’s creative participation with Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia, featuring the two cars - the new Mitsubishi Triton & Mitsubishi Outlander. The photo artworks are captured and created based on Mitsubishi’s slogan “Drive your Ambition” which states a strong commitment to the values and aspirations of its drivers. The moon is a familiar concept that recurs through every photo artwork, signifying an ambition or a dream. The photo artworks depict the toilsome effort of a man, who is the driver, carrying a moon from a forest out to the city.
