Jon Chiang is an avid urban landscape photographer who has been passionately pursuing the hobby for as long as he can remember. Growing up in the densely populated city-state of Singapore, being surrounded by skyscrapers and public housing is no stranger to him. As a result, Jon incorporates these elements into most of his photographs. However, Jon still enjoys exploring and venturing out into the last vestiges of open landscape and seascape remaining in Singapore, soaking in the sublime beauty of nature. Given the faced-paced and ever-changing visage of the country he calls home, Jon strives to capture the essence of these changes, lest they be lost in time forever.
Intrigued by the changing nature of light, Jon is fascinated by how light can give depth and dimension in the subject. Light, to him, is the ultimate Photoshop; no amount of post-processing can replicate good light. Light molds, shapes and breathes life into a scene, making the most mundane seem extraordinary. This shifting, fleeting moment of dramatic light is what drags Jon out of bed, or keeps him waiting for that tiny glimpse of golden glimmer that snatches away his breath. Till this day, his heart still races when the sun sets or rises from horizon yonder, painting the skies with beyond-natural tones.
Jon's works are available for purchase through Getty, and have been used in publications across the world.
