Fang Tong is a Chinese-born Canadian currently living in Vancouver BC. Throughout her career, she has explored many aspects of traditional visual media – specifically oil painting, sculpture, installation art and digital media such as 2D and 3D design, and this has brought her great satisfaction. Gradually, she became intrigued with photography. Through the lens, a great world opens up where she feels so much passion. She loves her work to border on the surreal yet hold back enough to keep it firmly in the real world. Her photos provoke audiences into creating a narrative out of cinematic pictures. Maybe there is no clearly defined story behind the scene, but there is a strong mood and atmosphere throughout the whole image. The imaginary world is strangely familiar while the narrative arc takes audiences on a hyper-visual ride through people’s subconsciousness. She loves this balance between the real and the surreal that pulls her audiences into her world.
