San A Jong admires the classical masters and the Magic Realism of Carel Willink. Applying a painstaking technique, he seeks to achieve a photographic accuracy. In his major works he evokes an alienated world, which is partly a reflection of his interest in mystism. San A Jong is also a successful portraitist.
