tephen king, son of gal­lerist Alice King, had a long ca­reer in fi­nance and in­vest­ing be­fore dis­cov­er­ing his pas­sion for tak­ing pic­tures four years ago at a pho­tog­ra­phy work­shop. Stephen will show his work for the first time at Alisan Fine Arts’ in­au­gu­ral pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion: Un/nat­u­ral. His im­ages are all from Ice­land, one of his favourite land­scapes to pho­to­graph, and in­clude dra­matic aerial shots of river deltas. “I’m fas­ci­nated by the pat­terns formed by na­ture, and through my im­ages I try to cap­ture the artis­tic beauty cre­ated by nat­u­ral phe­nom­ena,” he says. The ex­hi­bi­tion, which runs un­til Jan­uary 9, also fea­tures con­trast­ing in­dus­trial ab­stract works by Ming Thein, a Malaysian pho­tog­ra­pher. Thein, who grad­u­ated from Ox­ford Univer­sity at the age of 16, worked in fi­nance and as a se­nior ex­ec­u­tive at Mcdon­alds be­fore re­al­is­ing his call­ing in life lay be­hind the lens.
