Born in northwestern China, Shaoyi Zhang fell in love with photography when his grandfather, a photojournalist before China’s Cultural Revolution, gave him a Zeiss Ikon folding camera. After a career in editorial and commercial photography in both Shanghai and Auckland, New Zealand, he came to the U.S. to earn his master’s degree in digital photography from New York City’s prestigious School of Visual Arts.
