Albert V. Chong

NO TITLE

Albert V. Chong belongs to the group of contemporary photographers who no longer take photos, but make photos. Most of his work is constructed and assembled. In it he combines old family photos with objects such as shells, skulls and fruit. Chong, a Jamaican, has African, West Indian and Asian forbears, and in his work he investigates both his multicultural background and his transcultural identity. In these 'dialogues with his ancestors' he links various family members with one another. Chong in this way constructs a counterpart to an oral family history, passed down from generation to generation, transmitting norms and values, myths and anecdotes.
