Accomplished adventurer and photographer, Stefen Chow (born in 1980 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) started his interest in photography when he was a climbing member of a team scaling Mount Everest in 2005. At first trained in Mechanical Engineering and then in Photography, this young emerging photographer - based between Beijing and Singapore - has already been awarded several prizes and collaborated with international companies.

Among several series, one is particularly worth paying attention: The Poverty Line (started in November 2010). This is a visual project – in collaboration with the economist Lin Hui-yi - that contextualizes poverty across five continents. This series shows strong conceptual and aesthetic qualities while asking a very simple question: 'what does it mean to be poor?'.

Between data visualization and photography, Stefen Chow’s artworks portray food items that poor people can afford per day. The above photographs represent China’s poverty line, which was 3.28 CNY in 2010 and rise to 6.30 CNY (around one dollar) today.
