Chong Kok Choon

Environmental pollution began with the contamination of the human mind. In the hustle and bustle of life, man leaves nature behind and loses the connection to his own soul. An odyssey to India expands my exploration and had me re-examine my own inner being. Thus, through my lens, I thrive to reflect on the primitive quiddity of life and search for the congruous correspondence between man and nature.
