JUSTIN CHAN - PHOTOGRAPHER

PROFILE:
Born in Hong Kong, Justin Chan was High School and University educated in Canada. He spent most of his photographic career in Paris, London and Tokyo. He currently resides in Tokyo and lectures at the CITY UNIVERSITY OF HONG KONG periodically.

THE WORK:
Justin comes from an expansive and technical history of working between many photographic genres worldwide. This experience has led him to master capturing the mundane as something of exception, giving him years of experience on how to work within the constraints of any commercial brief. Justin’s work pertains to a strong and fluent sense of composition capturing the nuances of detail in mood, colour and performance.
