PER­FEC­TION AND PA­TIENCE

New Zealand D-Photo - - ONE TO WATCH LEEMAY WONG -

Dur­ing her fi­nal year of uni­ver­sity, Leemay Wong ex­per­i­mented with her love for min­i­mal­ism. We talked to her about her work, where she gets her in­spi­ra­tion, and what’s com­ing up in her fu­ture

“There was never re­ally a point in my life where I started pho­tog­ra­phy — it was just my thing,” Leemay Wong said. She re­ceived her very first cam­era from her dad at the age of 12, and, since then, she’s pro­gressed from her tiny point-and-shoot to her cur­rent Nikon D700. 21-year-old pho­tog­ra­pher has set up a stu­dio in her house where — with the pa­tience of a saint — she shoots sub­jects such as slow-melt­ing can­dles and ice creams.
