The Artist

Chan is an electronics engineer by education, photographer and filmmaker by passion and profession. The combination of instinctive art, creativity and acquired technical ability makes his work with Landscape, Industrial, Architecture and Product ethereal. Obsessive about perfection, Chan is driven by the need to create a flawless end product, no matter the amount of time and effort required.

His technical know-how and background is impressive, created with a combination of in-depth training and years of hands-on experience. Chan has worked with leading photography giants Nikon and Sony as product/technical head in the past and has assisted these brands with training and workshops. At Nikon India he was responsible for the set up and planning of the camera localisation project and Nikon School.

Among the equipment and the modern digital technology that he has been trained to use, he is well-versed with Large Format Camera techniques. He is adept at dealing with the challenges of a technically perfect shot combined with a unique aesthetic sense as well as the individual needs of the client.

He is co-founder of IDIS.

Chan’s true passion is the Himalayas. His regular escapades in the Himalayan ranges reaffirm his conviction that ‘life is a journey of consciousness, climbing from one degree of perfection to another…’ (Rig Veda 1.10.2).

Philosophy

Art assists in training the aesthetic sense, intellectual faculty & spirituality by raising images in the mind, which are to be understood not by analysis, but by self-identification with other minds; it is a powerful stimulator of sympathetic insight. Art is subtle and delicate, and it makes the mind also, in its movements, subtle and delicate.

It is suggestive, and the intellect habituated to the appreciation of art is quick to catch suggestions, mastering not only, as the scientific mind does, that which is positive and on the surface, but also that which leads to ever fresh widening and subtilizing of knowledge and opens a door into the deeper secrets of inner nature where the positive instruments of science cannot take the depth or measure.

Chan’s Photography is an attempt to capture the dynamic subtlety as seen in Creation, not only on the physical plain, but also in the vital & the mental realms, which further leads to the development and training of one’s imaginative & creative faculties for Life’s journey.
