Ricky Chang

I'll never forget the first day my uncle handed a camera to me. It was large, clunky and unattractive. I had to insert the film, made sure it grab and press the button either 36 or 24 times until I could get some results. It taught me patience. It taught me how to focus. It taught me humility. The darkroom was a real test of patience and care. The focus was on composition, exposure and detail.

Nearly 20 years later I am still doing it. I focus on street photography and landscape. I find subjects in and around New York City and on my travels abroad. In a way photography has humbled me throughout the years and allowed me to remember things. In a way, photography is my escape from my corporate job.
