Alex Qian - Chicago Origins - Collection of 50 Unique Stories

June 4th, 2018 - January 27th 2021

My journey began when I was laid off on June 4th, 2018. Chicago gave me my start, an opportunity to explore my creativity. First, as a young urban explorer climbing the roofs of the city with my camera when I got off work. Now, a multi-disciplined creator living my own version of the dream. The Chicago chapter of my journey closed on January 27th, 2021 when I moved to Los Angeles. This collection is what remains.

Each of these pieces served as stepping stones to get me to where I'm at now. No motivations other than pure passion and creativity being unleashed in pursuit of happiness - fulfilling my purpose. The mediums with which each image was captured varies and reflects the diversity of disciplines crafted and honed throughout the years. Though all digital, each image is timeless through my own lens.

This gallery is meant to give the community and my most dedicated supporters access to my creations in an entirely new way. Thanks for everything :)
