ChinatownMural Project continues honoring @corkyleeee, a beloved Chinese American photo- journalist who is deeply missed by the community. He had been documenting Asian American (not just East Asian) lives and movements for decades. we included his iconic railroad photo - he gathered the descendants of Chinese railroad labors who built the transcontinental railroad in the Midwest of America hundred years ago, and took a photo in front of the trains in Utah)
We collaborated with wonderful artist @minhafofa who did all the amazing portraits in this mural.

It was lovely to see so many people passing by recognized him, telling us how they miss him. Corky’s brother, partner and old friends were happy to see this too. It was a very emotional project that we hold dear to our hearts.
