© Kurt Tong, 2012

Originally from Hong Kong, spent two thirds of his life in England. The Queen, The Chairman and I is a project that traces his roots through new/found photographs and words.

I truly enjoyed the juxtaposition of images, old and new. Viewers may be forced to weave their own narratives through the different layers of history and Tong’s personal story. The project becomes a legacy for his own children who may one day embark on their own searches. Remarkable piece of work.

Kurt Tong’s The Queen, The Chairman and I will be presented as part of the London Festival of Photography, and will be available at the Horse Hospital from 31 May to 23 June 2012. Details are available here.
