My name is Yuning Shi. I am from China and17 years old. Currently I am a 12th grade student at The Flushing International High School in Flushing, Queens, New York. Photography is my future career choice because I enjoy the process of using my own hands with my ideas to show an object or scene in a creative way. I enjoy finding new things in my life that I never cared about before or looked at in a certain way that then can become new through photography. Photography gives me more ideas about the world and I am working to try new things such as exploring light and the new places that I didn’t even know were in my house.
I am Mingxi Wang, an 18 years old Chinese and a senior student at Flushing International High School. I have loved photography from the age of 14, initially, I just wanted to remember how my surroundings in China were before coming here and I took many playful pictures, but I found photography interesting when looking at things from another perspective, remembering that moment and understanding the stories behind each other’s photographs.
