The first time Wei Jian Chan picked up a camera, he was 14 years old and growing up in Singapore. He later moved to Oxford to attend university and then to London for work, but the camera remained a constant companion. Wei Jian’s love of photography has grown from a pastime into a source of inspiration and passport to new experiences. The artist seeks out beauty and stillness in the chaos of modern working life. Wei Jian utilises traditional wet darkroom processes, as well as modern digital techniques. These monochromatic images incorporate elements of geometry, architecture and motion, seen in the works Spiral and Shattered.
