Yao-pi Hsu

I have worked in the biosciences field as a research scientist for more than thirty years. Two award winning photographs I took during a memorable trip back to China inspired me to get into photography. Since then I have continued to pursue my interest in photography. Art and science each take a turn in how I understand the world around me. As a fine art photographer I apply the same principles I used in scientific research: search and research, examine and reexamine, and explore concepts from different perspectives. I explore the world around me, as I look for reflections, angles or perspectives that represent how diverse and abundant the world expresses its various forms and beauties. The joy and reward of being in the right place, at the right time to freeze the moment and to capture the beauty of our surrounding are invigorating. www.yaopiphoto.com
