Founding members

Alan Ieon

Born in 1987. A graduate from the Department of Physics, National Tsing Hua University of Taiwan, Alan takes photos that are inspired by the various changes occurred after Macao handover to China. His works focus on such themes as city landscapes, urban/national regime and personal identity, in an attempt to register those scattered and invisible fragments in order to present the actual city, revealing some absurd aspects of the system, and eventually exploring the very purpose of our existence.

Tang Kuok Hou

Born in Macau in 1989 with a BA in sociology from the University of Macau, Tang has participated in more than 30 arts exhibitions in Macao and overseas besides two solo shows. He takes on such themes as identity, time, memory and local culture to explore, through man-made landscape, the interconnection among urbanites, landscapes and human existence versus Nature, as well as their respective meaning.

Wong Cheok Meng

Born in Macau in 1990, with a BA in software engineering from the University of Macau, Wong focuses on such themes as city, space and symbols to probe the meaning of existence and the essence of things.

Rusty Fox

Born in Macau in 1991, Rusty got a BA in photography and a MA in documentary photography in Newport, U.K. and he believes documentary photography has no expressional limits. He likes to observe urban balances and imbalances, being especially interested in the often neglected relations between organic and inorganic things, i.e. living things, human beings and inanimate objects. He tries to reveal common traits in unusual things, facilitating dialogue with viewers through his/her images.
