Light and shadow

ManChingKC pays particular attention to the relationship between light and shadow. He strives his best to reflect this relationship by manipulating these two elements through his subtle yet conscientious observations. Among all categories of photography, ManChingKc is best at portrait and street photography. Through his camera, ManChingKC constructs himself as a “Garden of Eden” frame by frame. “Walking down the street, observing all beings that surround the universe has always been a spiritual practice for me. The peacefulness and quietness have always enlightened me of numerous possibilities and joy. I think, for me, this is what photography is all about.”


“Sometimes photography is a way for me to reflect on life. When I look through the small rectangular space of my viewfinder, the world seems very quiet and still. This space suddenly becomes very vast. Not only does it allow me to discover many possibilities, but it also gives me happy moments when I indulge myself with some peaceful thinking.”
