Chong, Garrett Andrew
About the artistA design + photography honours graduate (Emily Carr 1986), my B/W infrared photoworks attempted to capture the auras, energies and "unseen light" within spaces and shapes. My works have evolved through spiritual influences, silent meditation, Hatha Yoga and the opening of Chakras. Each of these practises has contributed to the re-alignment of my imagery. Travels to ancient civilizations have revealed the interconnectedness of the whole and amplified my awareness of inner peace in the present moment. Migrating from B/W infrared film to HDR digital was a natural evolution. Thus revealing the "unseen light" previously witnessed and unravelling the Stillness within the Stills... in Sacred Places. Art Exhibitions + Published Works: Emily Carr - Alumni Show, Chernoff Fine Arts, Alcan Lectures Architecture, du Maurier International Jazz Fest, Coastal Jazz Society, Confucius Institute.
Still[s]... In Sacred Places:

Be What You Do.
