|Sleeve Caption||Street scenes throughout Chicago from the view of a new photographer to the city. For Feng Liu, who came here from Singapore in 1999, Chicago is America. Fascinated by a new culture, Liu has taken to the streets of Chicago with a fresh perspective on our way of life."To me, the culture is new and interesting, " he says."We can spread the language of all life and being from country to country and from person to person. Photography's universal comprehensibility erases the boundaries of language."|
Born in Shanghai, Liu moved to Chicago's Northwest Side for his job as a quality engineer. But it's in his spare time that he dives into the American scene, capturing the faces and places that are new to him. Liu has carved a niche with CITY 2000 as one of the project's pure street photographers. His only assignment: venturing out into the city and capturing the sights as an eyewitness."
These pictures tell his story as well as ours.
