Following the Winter Light Artist Talk with Charles Yang

Apr 18

Charles Yang’s passion for photography began in his teens when his father gave him an old camera along with a subscription to National Geographic magazine. Over the last five decades, Yang has lived and worked globally, including in Hong Kong, England, Canada, the United States, and China, always with a camera on his side.
The artist writes of his work, “For years, I have chased after unique light and moments in diverse corners of the world, often relying on my feet and local public transport. This forced me to immerse myself in the daily lives of the people I encountered, leading me to unseen angles and hidden gems bathed in extraordinary light. For me, the subtropical climate with its heat and humidity demands a winter escape. Guided by the magic of the winter sun, I have embarked on solo journeys to capture the essence in these captivating communities.”
The artist talk will be interactive, allowing viewers to ask questions and engage with the artist’s socio-cultural commentary, which is woven into each photograph.
Charles Yang has self-published three photographic monographs, Shanghai the Pre-COVID Soul of The City (2020-2017), On Reading From Analogue To Digital, and Under The Moroccan Winter Sun. His color and monochrome prints have been exhibited at Darkroom Revelations Gallery, and he has had joint print exhibitions with Lesley Ackman at Harrison Art Center and Garfield Park Art Center in Indianapolis.
