Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋, Canada 加拿大
Mobile 手机： Iphone 6
Lives in: Shanghai, China
In 1981 with a second-hand camera and expired film Wang Gangfeng set out to capture the everyday images of China that surrounded him. The scenes that he captured represent the daily ebbs and flows of life in China.
The subjects of those first photos were the people who lived in his neighborhood. Wang would explore, catching street life, in only the way someone who lived and grew up in the neighborhood could. He was an insider looking in. What makes his photos from this period so distinct is how Wang’s presence is so natural.
In what started out as photographic memoir of his neighbors, Wang Gangfeng, has now expanded that vision to include a nation of over a billion people. With his keen eye for finding the fleeting moment he will continue for many years to capture all the wonder and excitement that is the Chinese experience.
Wang was the judge of 2016 3th and 2017 4th ChinaBase Mobile Photo Contest.
