IN STORE EVENTS
Yan Wang "To Curiosity" Exhibition & Opening Reception - Bellevue, WA
Opening DECEMBER 8
Closing JANUARY 11
Please join us at Leica Store Bellevue on Sunday, December 8 at 1:00pm for a captivating and inspirational talk by Yan Wang at his exhibition opening reception. “I am a scientist, engineer, and pilot. I hold curiosity of our world and I am always interested in the secrets of Mother Nature hidden from our naked eyes. In order to explore them I have to push the limit of the tools at hand. It is a tough journey, but also filled with surprises that are revealed through persistence and creativity. In this talk and exhibition I will introduce how my curiosity pushed me to go beyond the boundary of humans’ capabilities using common and uncommon photographic equipment to take photos of darker and distant objects (astrophotography), smaller objects (macrophotography), rare scenes (landscapes), and from uncommon perspectives (e.g. aviation photography) that are different that what we are used to experiencing.” Yan Wang.
