Natural History & Travel Fine Art

Artist Statement


Photography initially (2000 – 2001) was just a way for me to document my travels and share them with family and friends. It quickly became a creative outlet for me to express myself as I struggled to establish myself following college while also helping me to cope with my dad’s terminal illness. Photography is equal parts art and therapy for me. While my photos might sometimes look beautiful, it is rarely my intent to showcase beauty for beauty’s sake. Most of my favorite work seeks to relive specific memories and feelings from my youth. Some photographers scour the planet for the most remote locations possible but I choose to primarily focus on the California Coast, Yosemite and Canada because those are where the majority of my life’s best memories are from. – Richard Wong, San Francisco, California (2018)
