About the photographer
Paul Chong was born in Malaysia and moved to China since 10 years ago. He started photography since 2001 and loves to create nature landscape fine art photograph. He was inspired to take photos when he first bought a Rollei compact film camera back then as a university student while attending photography classes. This provides him a greater freedom later in his life to take photos when travelling and backpacking across the countryside to create art.
Artist Statement – ‘Finding Art In Nature’
“I create photograph to express the wonder of nature. I believe the outdoor landscape is full of beauty that awaits our attention and appreciation. The Creator Himself has given us this precious land for us to relate, and enjoy. I create photograph not just for the sake of taking beautiful photos, but it is foremost an expression of my heart to capture the feeling of the wide spaces and the atmosphere.
Through this exhibition, I hope that these photographs may inspire you to see the beauty found in the nature world that surrounds us. And to live out the dreams and visions that is in your heart!”
