Everyone knows Corky and for good reason. If you want something other than the usual stereotyped images of Chinatown or "orientals," he has them. His tens of thousands of negatives are full of people working, grabbing a moment, at demonstrations all in movement. He also remembers who's who and always has a story to make the images come alive. He is our chronicler! Our griot! We're honored to have Mr. Lee as our artist in residence for 2002.
