|RICHARD YUMANG PHOTOGRAPHY|
Richard Yumang is a documentarian photographer currently residing in Harlem, New York City.
Yumang is also transitioning into fashion print working with Major, Boss, Wilhelmina and Ford Model Management Agencies.
He is currently working on his first photography exhibit expected for Fall 2012 in New York City. The exhibit, titled “Poverty in America,” will showcase 20 photos depicting New York City gentrification and the city’s increase in poverty.
His photographs depict the raw emotions that he sees in the world. His mission is to ingrain social issues through his photography defined by what he believes to be America as seen through everyday New York City life.
Camera placement is arranged at different angles to capture diverse perspectives on how certain streets, buildings, and individuals can be perceived. Yumang aims to properly document the present photographically, with a particular focus of his being the transformation of ‘old’ New York into ‘new’ New York through the gentrification happening in Harlem and into the boroughs of the Bronx and Brooklyn.
In a philanthropic effort, Yumang has devoted himself to the Gordon Parks Foundation, the National Arts Club and American Society of Media Photographers New York Chapter.
