Weilun Chong developed a deep interest in photography since he held his father’s camera when he was eight. However, he was no more than a hobbyist throughout his formative years, experimenting and collecting cameras rather than taking photographs. He got more serious in it after he discovered street and documentary photography.
Born in Penang, Malaysia, Weilun was educated in Singapore and graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts Singapore. He holds a day job as an advertising art director, pursuing his photography passion on his daily commute and whenever he finds time to.
