Eiffel Chong

Eiffel Chong (b. 1977, Malaysia) graduated with an MA in International Contemporary Art and Design Practice from the University of East London and a BA (Hons) in Photography from London College of Printing. Besides his production of photographic work, Chong is highly engaged with the Malaysian photographic community; taking on the role of mentor for the Goethe Institut Malaysia / Nikon Shooting Stars programme and Exposure+ Workshop. In addition, he has been appointed to the panel of judges for the Kuala Lumpur Photography Awards 2013 and 2010 / 2011 Annual Nikon Photo Awards, Malaysia.

Carefully interweaving notions of memory, place and identity, Chong constructs scenarios that hinge on the boundary of fiction and reality to play on the psychology of life and death. Central to his practice is the idea of fragility, of human life within the rapid flux of a city, and of built structure within an increasingly unpredictable natural environment. He is interested in how the photographic medium can translate a particular time and space, memories and thoughts into something permanent. He personally thinks that the images say more with less, and encourages pensiveness in place of immediate reaction.
