To Have and Have Not
Between 2005 and 2007, on the eve of the crisis, Hin Chua worked for a large investment bank in the financial district of London. Chua took his camera to work with him every day. Before, during and after office hours – to the extent that the 24/7 international financial world is so bounded – Chua investigated “The City”. The result was a vast number of photos of a world that believed itself unassailable and walked into a wall, with eyes wide open.
Hin Chua (Malaysia, b. 1974) was born in Malaysia but emigrated to Australia while still quite young. He studied computer science, worked in the financial sector, and began to photograph ‘to forget a girl’. In 2009 he was chosen as one of the Magenta Flash Forward Emerging Photographers. Hin Chua lives and works in London.
