Chris Phung is a second-generation Vietnamese-Australian. Currently studying sociology, Chris is a passionate advocate for refugee and migrant youth rights. His creative practice enters the world of others with empathy and opens up contemplative space to listen deeply, heal and reflect. A contemplative space which he believes is particularly important in a time where we remain physically distanced from one another, whilst so much instability is unfolding in our world.
Phung’s debut project Holding Space exhibited in 'Clearing the Shadow', (December, 2019) at the Le Space gallery was the beginning of his deep exploration into emotional vulnerability and compassion through photography.
