Lance Chang uses distortion and blur to enhance the movement and dreamlike quality of his photographs. Resembling the waves of the ever-changing aurora borealis, his photographic art taps into beautiful, alluring and, at times, foreboding worlds. The images evoke memories of childhood fairy tales. Watercolour-like compositions allow the viewer to tap into their own fleeting and familiar recollections, shaping the stories behind the images.
A number of Chang’s prints are featured in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Dance in New York. He is based in Southern California, where he earned degrees from Pomona College and the Brooks Institute of Photography.
