Alec can offer insights not just for aspiring photographers but for anyone interested in real-life storytelling. How to connect with strangers? Why do people agree to be photographed, or not? How to be fair to your subject? The importance of perspective.
"This exhibition is also conceived to encourage young Chinese photographers to look at the normal life that surrounds them and find the value in even the most humble of ordinary lives" -- SCoP.
