The FORM Gallery presents “Enchanted,” “The City that Never Sleeps,” and “Flatiron,” three works by Ralph Choi that showcase the beauty of New York City. His photography, on display from March 3-8, captures how the city appears at different times of the day and different seasons of the year.
A sophomore biology and pre-med student from Flushing, NY, Choi says that he embraces his artistic side when he is working on his photography. “I take pictures that appeal to the eye instead of appealing to the rules.”
Choi enjoys experimenting with exposure and lighting to capture the energy of the city. “The pictures reflect my passion for cityscape photography. I like to roam around in the hopes of finding unique angles to photograph skyscrapers,” he adds.
Choi plans to attend med-school and become a general surgeon after graduating from Hofstra, proving that the best kind of student is one with many interests and talents.
The opening reception for Choi’s exhibit will be on Monday, March 4, at 8 p.m. in the FORM Gallery space, located on the first floor of Calkins Hall.
