Born in Hong Kong, Justin Chan was High School and University educated in Canada, where he obtained his degree in Visual Arts & Philosophy. He lived & works as a fash-ion/commercial photographer between Paris, London and Tokyo. He was also a part-time lecturer at the HONG KONG POLYTECHNIC COLLEGE OF ART while in Hong Kong. 2010 saw him starting an agent for international photographers & production company for China and the Asian Pacific region while based in Shanghai.
And now, as a member of the IAVA INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VISUAL ARTISTS in Italy, he concentrates wholeheartedly on his own art/abstract photography.
Justin comes from an expansive and technical history of working between many photo-graphic 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 his own imagination.
Justin’s work pertains to a strong and fluent sense of composition capturing the nuances of detail in mood, colour and performance. And with his own special visual language, he now continues to break traditional photographic boundaries, and discovers fresh ideas in expressing his world view.
