About - Alan Lai Photo Art

Thanks for visiting my photo site.

I am a Canadian and I live in Vancouver. I enjoy doing portrait, landscape, and street photography. 

Photography to me is an educator who inspires imagination, provokes justice, and it invites us to fall in love with the world. It is a spiritual practice, an interpretative art, or some call it hermeneutics; it has no fixed boundaries.  It is about ways of seeing the world. 

Through taking and processing pictures, I am inspired to pay attention to the world around me, to acquire artistic visions to interpret what I see, and to express myself through photo sharing. 

I am not a full time photographer. I graduated from Columbia University in New City City with a doctorate. I have a day job. But when I have time, I will take my camera, go outside and even travel to take photos.
