Clement Hong Yui Chan | Hong Kong

Short bio:
Chan Hong Yui Clement (b. 1992) is a photographic artist who lives and works in Hong Kong. Upon completion of his B.F.A. in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015, Chan had developed a strong interest in the medium of photography as an art form. Chan’s image-making process often begins with responding to some of the medium’s inherent qualities: descriptive, subjective and voyeuristic. In 2014, Chan was selected as the winning candidate of New Light V, an annual program that is organized by Lumenvisum and sponsored by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council to support talented young artists and provide them with an opportunity for a solo exhibition.

Why do you photograph on film?
The word photography, translated from ancient Greek, literally means “drawing with light.” This essence of film-based photography is rooted in its photochemical process.

What is your work about?
My image-making process often begins with responding to some of the medium’s inherent qualities: descriptive, subjective and voyeuristic.
