Early life[edit]

Sun-chang Lo is a Chinese American photographer, artist, architect. Born in Guangzhou, China, and has lived and studied in Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong and the United States.

Following graduation from the Cooper Union, New York City, in 1972, he was a recipient of the Japanese Monbukagakusho Scholarship from 1974 to 1976. While studying under Professor Kazuo Shinohara at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, analysis and synthesis of the theories and histories of Chinese and Japanese architecture landed him two consecutive awards in the 1975 and 1976 Japan Architect International Residential Competitions.[1]

Architecture, design and photography[edit]

From 1977 to 1979, while participating in the Lukang Landmark Preservation Project, he taught architecture and design at Tunghai University, Taiwan. Back in his New York City home base, he and his wife/partner, Jean, pursued a multi-discipline design practice ranging from architecture, interior, fashion and graphic design, to photography, surveying and model making.

From 1993 to 2008 he taught art and architecture, design, drawing and photography at the Department of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong.

Despite Sun-chang's stylistic consistency, the artistic content of his photography holds inexhaustible possibilities awaiting endless explorations. With each scrutiny, one is always able to discover previously undetected profundities... Vague semblance is the phenomenon of the impalpable and the incommensurable, and is an incarnation of Tao. Sun-chang's latest work is at the threshold of Tao. – Pao-teh Han, director Museum of World Religions

Currently[edit]

In 2008, Sun-chang Lo was referenced in The Hong Kong Art Archive. He is presently a freelance architect/artist/photographer living in New York city.
