PPAC 2018 Top 10 International Photographers – Kaiyan Wong
Like the quote from her: “Photography is a presentation of art in one's life. As my life is full of reality, laughs and tears, I hope my artwork is able to arouse more people's feeling and enjoy life through it.”
She is a mother of a 3-year-old girl and she is Kaiyan Wong. She has begun photo shooting for over a year only. The reason she became a photographer is indeed her regrets from not taking any professional photos of her daughter when she was born. She hence started learning photography through shooting her little nephew after her birth and therefore became a newborn photographer.
Her award acceptance speech and future plans: "First of all, I wish to express my gratitude to PPAC for presenting me this award. I still have a lot to learn and improve on the path of photography and this award is being an encouragement to me, encouraging me to move forward and create more fantastic artwork.
Through joining the competition, I received many advice and exchanged many different ideas as well. As a professional photographer, I realized our mission is more than just shooting a photo. It is that everytime when we hold up our camera and shoot, we are in fact recording people's important moments and become witnesses to their life.
There are a lot of surprises and unknowns in our life. I am thankful to my family, friends and colleagues who have assisted me along my photography path. Because of them coming into my life and shining on me, I have courage to get through my life's difficulties, confusions and hardness and take up various challenges along the way.
Hopefully, I could learn more and more from PPAC and wish PPAC can reach higher and higher in the future. I also hope more of my photos can be qualified to the next final print competition. I think the yearly competition is my expectations and love towards beautiful life. See you next year!”
