Born in Singapore, ND Chow relocated to Tokyo in 2000 to pursue his dreams of becoming a successful portrait photographer. Before his move to Tokyo, ND spent two years globe-trotting to discover the world and himself. It proved to be his turning point. It also laid the foundation for his visual sensibilities, aesthetics and philosophy as a photographer today. The influence of those formative years permeates the images ND creates today.
A man of contradictions, he is known both for his gentleness and his ability to ‘destroy’. His gift of playful intuition and keen insight into the human nature has disarmed his subjects before the camera lens, collapsing their carefully crafted personas to expose the inner lives behind these iconic faces. What emerged are authentic images of beauty, character and honest vulnerability. He currently resides in Tokyo where he continues exploring new boundaries in his creative projects.
