The artist

Born in Canton in 1973, photographer Jeff Kwok chose Hong Kong as his adoptive island. Located several kilometres from his original city, he rediscovered the land of his ancestors who lived there prior to their exodus to continental China during World War II. After studies in Germany, he continued his university cursus with a Masters in Finance at the prestigious University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada. The young man put his technical skills and enthusiasm to good use in the megalopolis, moving there to develop a variety of activities, both commercial and artistic. Passionate about culture, architecture and landscapes, he takes sensitive portraits of the countries he travels to, full of admiration and poetry. While his encounter with photography occurred in 2000, his talent was recognised four years later with the selection of one of his images for the entrance of a restaurant. Finding the confidence to pursue his passion, he thus started his own business and now criss-crosses five continents to take photographs that are gaining recognition in Asia.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

Jeff Kwok is an artist oscillating between Hong Kong, a modern city with vertiginous skyscrapers, and the landscapes of continental China with their enshrining atmosphere, which he criss-crosses in the course of his photographic journeys. Entranced by the natural splendours and architectural heritage of what was the Chinese civilisation during the dynastic period, the photographer travels to the sites of pilgrimage to testify to this past and the wealth of cultural diversity of his country. This photograph taken in autumn 2013 represents the natural reserve of the Tibetan valley of Jiuzhaigou in Sichuan province. This site is particularly renowned for the splendour of its waterfalls and lakes. According to Tibetan tradition, a god offered a mirror to the goddess that he loved. The goddess let the mirror fall, which broke into 118 pieces, forming as many lakes. The valley now constitutes a magical site, unlike any other. The images Jeff Kwok composes thus leave room for the imagination and cause memories to well up, or simply allow us to dream. In his works, juxtaposition and colour contrasts enable the forms to be revealed and to accentuate the depth of the landscape.
