Sze Tsung Leong was born in Mexico City but grew up in the United States and Britain. From 1987-9 he attended Art Center College of Design, California, before going on to gain degrees in architecture at the University of California at Berkeley in 1993 and Harvard University in 1998. Leong’s interest in architecture and in particular perspective drawing is visible in his photographic work. His ‘Horizons’ series is an interchangeable sequence of photographs of natural and urban environments from around the world which, when hung together creates a potentially infinite landscape. Other projects include ‘Cities’, which depicts urban landscapes and ‘History Images’ which focuses on cities as documents of history, a recording of history in urban form.
