About John Deng
I was born in Shanghai China. I graduated from college with a degree in fine art and taught art at college level for several years. In my early years in New York, I studied Photography in School of Visual Arts and NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
In 1998, I started my own commercial photography studio in New York City. However, travel, landscape and fine art photography really inspire my passion and creativity. In recent years, I’ve spent most of my time on fine art photography. I’ve exhibited my works widely across the US in various galleries and top national shows
I hope my work transcends the ordinary landscape to express the drama and story of the place and people. Much of my work is shot in China because my emotion and enthusiasm flow from these places. Art originates from the heart, while its structure and expression are full of technique.
