MEMENTO – Photo Exhibition by Keith Kong
- Wed 20-02-2019 to Mon 04-03-2019
Anita Chan Lai-ling Gallery
For the past ten years, I have captured memories through photography in order to express my experiences in an artistic yet realistic manner.
Photography has, to me, what painting and writing doesn't. While a painter or writer can express themselves freely without boundaries or compose abstractions on a plain canvas, photography is always tied to reality on an intrinsic level, regardless of how the final composition presents itself.
For me, it is about competing with time, capturing light, through reflection and emotional filters, much alike what we do in our lives.
When overlapping images and accidental exposures occur as if cosmic surprises and racing thoughts intercross, such accidents can also be beautiful.
