|Armed with a new Digital
SLR (Canon D60), I had a different photographic experience this time in Europe.
My path took me from SF to Boston to Paris to Milan/Liguria (Italy)
to Brussels to Amsterdam to Paris to Boston to SF. I realized afterwards
that I lost some of my strength in composition when the film is essentially
free, but I gained the ability to take panoramic shoots that can be digitally
stitched together after the fact.
How interesting that our view of the world is changed by the equipment that we employ. Working with the limits of the camera enables a new kind of thinking. With digital photography, keeping the same creative insight is the new challenge.

Born in Taiwan, Ed H. Chi started pursuing art seriously in 1989 as a ceramist, starting with hand-built sculptural forms and moving on to utilitarian vessels on the potter’s wheel. Most works were vases ranging from 1.5-3 feet tall. At the University of Minnesota, he started studying photography in 1992. In 1997, after a 3-year hiatus, he picked up the camera again. Starting with a series of studies in nature on several trips, he moved onto architecture. Not fearing the unknown, he is now on a quest to understand the human form and its relation to the surrounding contexts. In his spare time, Ed enjoys doing research on his computer, and martial arts.
