About Artist

 

Bio

Chris Wong is a commercial photographer from Hong Kong with a background in graphic design. He has been focused on developing themes on everyday life with a special interest in the aesthetics of the Polaroid.

The Polaroid used to be a professional tool for Chris Wong. Now it becomes his sanctuary away from work. The unpredictability of its images highlights the purism of his artistic pursuit. Living in a digital world when you can undo, modify or delete, it is a mindful training when you press the button and have to accept the imperfection.

簡歷

黃海輝 - 香港商業攝影師,曾修讀平面設計及攝影。他喜歡發掘有關生活文化的題材,並鑽硏寶麗來(拍立得)相機的拍攝美學,在個人創作中探索各種實驗影像。

寶麗來(拍立得)是黃海輝昔日的工作器材,今天成了他工餘時的歇息之所。它的影像雖隨機不定,卻是最純粹的視覺創作。在數位世界中,以相機作伴,每一次按下快門,坦然面對不完美的結果,都是人生的修練。
