I mainly create urban themed artworks and installations with a cultural and environmental awareness. When I was a 12-year-old boy in the 1970s, my best friend and I would often sneak onto the transit system and explore various areas of Chicago. On one occasion, while prowling the trains, we stumbled upon Chinatown. Looking down at the neighborhood from the train platform, I was intrigued and exhilarated, the signage, the architectural structures, and the people; it was as if we discovered another world. This was a life-changing moment for me, I was fascinated and it expanded my thinking. Years later, when I got my first camera, Chinatown was the place I consciously decided to document first. Since then I have traveled the world and I’ve found profound inspiration in following my sense of curiosity and need for urban cultural discovery; this is the foundation for my creative process. – Glenn Wexler
