Calvin Chow Calvin Chow


Calvin Chow is an artist, photographer, and director with an interest in the relentlessness of things, of time, of space, and everything in between. Having lived across a nature reserve in Singapore his entire life, his work traces between nature and humanity through the use of the photographic lens.

Calvin is currently based in Singapore, focused on Southeast Asia, and available globally. His work has been featured internationally in the British Journal of Photography, Libération, Its Nice That, Nowness Asia, and The Straits Times. He also exhibited at the 2020 edition of the Singapore International Photography Festival.

When not working on projects, you can find him rock climbing or getting lost in the Singaporean jungle. Calvin is available for editorial and commercial photography commissions.
