Lester Lai’s photography illustrate often soft portrayals of Asian culture. They seem to be more about technique than anything else; capturing the shadow falling on a man’s face as he reads about Elizabeth Taylor; or the bright flash of sun caught swirling around a youthful body playing outside. These galleries, whether they are strictly black and white pieces or women cropping up in similar positions, similar places, exhibit an Eastern culture that we can relate to. It strives to close the gap between differing places on a map and bring together people instead of preconceived notion.
