I’m obsessed with all things New York. I’ve never been there, not yet, but I will, in God’s perfect time. In the meantime, I tour (my eyes) around the City of Dreams with the help of Kevin Wong, a nineteen year old photographer from Hong Kong. He is currently residing in New York and is taking up architecture at The New School.
Kevin has that natural spark with skylines. Their chemistry is just perfect that when he starts to hit the shutter button of his Nikon D800E, the world becomes even more beautiful than it already is.
He gives his all in every shot, resulting to such strong images that will make you want to look more than twice.
Aside from taking beautiful photos, Kevin also spends his free time playing sports, reading and writing non-fiction, and poetry.
He hasn’t taken up any course in photography, which is crazy. It’s crazy how he is able to produce such clever photos. They are so distinct, sharp and crisp that you cannot help but say “AAAHH” when they appear on your feed. I cannot. It comes out as a surprise every morning, and my day is made.
He sees so much beauty in every object and he is able to bring it out in his photos. He is able to make natural moments exciting, and every capture is a perfect moment. There’s just so much to appreciate in every photo, and this might be too much, but looking at them brings hope. I’ll always be glad that I have stumbled upon his work.
I like taking exciting photos of natural moments that happen on a daily basis. I love capturing the ‘perfect moment’; when a stranger walking in the center of a photograph, or when the clouds turn bright pink for a few minutes during sunsets. I also like to have fun with perspectives and reflections, that might confuse the viewer of the photograph for a second or two, before he or she realizes how the shot was taken.
