Sze Tsung Leong, holding American and British citizenship, was born in Mexico City in 1970. He completed his undergraduate studies at University of California, Berkeley and Art Center College of Design; and completed his graduate studies at Harvard University.

Since 2002, Sze Tsung Leong has been photographing the dramatic urban changes that have transformed the cities of China - revealing a process that ranges from the destruction of traditional neighborhoods, which once formed the unique identities of China's cities, to the mass construction of new urban environments. Photographed with a large-format view camera in cities throughout China - including Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Nanjing, Pingyao, and Xiamen - these highly detailed images portray the immense scale of an urban upheaval overwhelming the minute scale of the individual. Leong currently lives and works in New York.
