Today is a very special day. My story documenting Chinese-American lion dancers has been featured in the New York Times Lens Blog, along with New York Times Metropolitan, and International New York Times. This means so much to me. Thank you to all my classmates and teachers from the International Center of Photography that helped me along the way. Thank you John for putting me in touch with lion dancers out here in New York City. And a very special thank you to Team WCM for taking me in and allowing me to share this wonderful ancient art form with the world.
For this piece, instead of spending thousands of dollars getting framed exhibition quality art prints, we decided to go with the traditional wheatpaste technique most street artists use when bombing the streets of New York. It is imperfect, spontaneous, and even messy at times, but seeing that this is a documentation of street dancers, it was only appropriate to stay within the realms of street art.
Special thanks to Robyn for the opportunity of sharing my gift with the very people that inspired it.
I am very honored to have been one of the two photographers chosen among the entire class of 2014 to be featured at the International Center of Photography. This is also the first time my work is being exhibited! If you haven't seen the show, "Elective Affinities," it is still up until August 11th, and it's a great chance to see some real emerging talent, so feel free to stop by and check out some amazing work.
