Shing Chia is an emerging photographer, migrated from Malaysia and settled in Melbourne, Australia. At the start of his photography studies at Photography Studies College in Melbourne, he was inspired works from Arnold Newman and Gregory Heslier.
His images focus on people and their environment. His ability to engage with his subjects, delving into their environment, listening to their stories and building a rapport, shows in his work. Portraying his subjects in a candid, non-contrived manner draws the audience into the world of his subject.
Shing also has a growing interest in moving images. Capturing subjects on video and telling their stories in a documentary format within a limited time frame, is a fun challenge.
