About Eiffel Chong
Eiffel Chong 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 Communication. Besides his production of photographic work, Chong is highly engaged with the Malaysian photographic community; taking on the role of mentor for the Malaysian Pixel Shooting Stars programme and Exposure+ Photography workshops.
In addition, he has been appointed to the panel of judges for the Kuala Lumpur Photography Awards 2016 and 2017 Annual Nikon Photo Awards, Malaysia. He is also an academician with Tunku Abdul Rahman University College.
Eiffel Chong’s work considers abstract concepts of life and death through the banal details, silent landscapes and curious obsessions he observes from daily life. 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 makes one just want to stare and think about them.
