Zili Zhang
Zili Zhang is a fine art photographer based in Greenwich, Connecticut. His portfolio showcases two extremes of the spectrum: minimalistic nature and chaotic streets. Yet, they both serve the same purpose: to tell a story and evoke emotions. His work embodies his motto of "Simple. Beautiful. Meaningful.”
