Product Description



As a former mountaineer who summitted Everest, Stefen Chow is accustomed to challenge and hardship. The year 2020 started with nothing but promise for this Beijing-based photographer and director. But, as he set off with his wife and children to celebrate the Chinese New Year with extended family in Malaysia and Singapore, little did he know that both his planned assignments and scheduled itinerary would soon evaporate.
After following Chow’s recent social media posts, it seemed that his story would provide others with some sound advice and a means for hope amid troubling times. In the following Q&A, Chow offers insights for maintaining a positive attitude while juggling uncertainty and sudden change, keeping children calm when addressing serious concerns, surviving isolation with others in tight quarters, and coming through the other side to get life back on track.

Jill Waterman: Let’s start at the beginning of 2020. What was on the horizon for you at that time, both personally and professionally?
Stefen Chow: It was meant to be a very busy year. I was just about to take a break and rest for two weeks during the Chinese New Year, and work would start when I returned from my holidays in early February. I had commercial assignments lined up in at least three different cities and was in talks for even more. My wife and I also had The Poverty Line book being published in two languages, plus a solo exhibition was planned for the Arles Photography Festival in France this summer.
In 2019, I took 100 flights to four continents for various projects, and I was on back-to-back travel eight months of the year. I expected 2020 to be the same or busier.
