I'm a Chinese American photographer born and raised in New York. My photographs permeate my view of a gentle, warm and obligatorily culturally conscious New York.

I didn’t grow up around art. I was attending business school when photography found me - selling photographs in Times Square for a startup and handling a camera I didn't know how to use for +30 hours a week.

Ultimately I attracted the right friends who gave me a glimpse into the music industry; tour, events, shows, travel and everything incorporated with photographing musicians.

I decided to take time off school and play catch up on art for a couple of years. Endless hours at book stores, galleries, and shows led to my inspirations and aspirations as a young photographer.

My work is fixated on lighting and sensitive moments, whether it be fashion, portraiture, or documentary.

Ian Evan Lam. (b. 1996 New York, NY).
