Ken Wong-Youk-Hong, photographer also known as Ken's Eye, views the world around him with bewildering sensitivity. He captures the souls of the people he photographs, letting his human gaze direct his lens. His photos are part of a civic and poetic approach, and defend better living together.
Born in Guyana in 1978, to a Martinican mother and a Chinese father, Ken Wong-Youk-Hong is a child of diversity, from a land without borders, without barriers. He grew up in giving and sharing with a loving and loved grandmother and a mother who instilled in him from an early age generosity and altruism. His perception of human feelings and his eye on those around him allow him to capture the souls he meets on his way and bring them to life through the emotions he captures and transcribes in his photographs.
With a talent as great as his heart, this 42-year-old humanist photographer from Bordeaux places us in front of ourselves through his gaze on the Other.
