Gordon Szeto grew up on the edge of Russian Hill, close to Chinatown, a neighborhood that, from a young age, captivated him. As a teenager, he got into photography, and Chinatown was a natural subject. These days, he and a few other photographers are documenting life in Chinatown—the people and businesses that have held out all these years. In this episode, Gordon talks about growing up in San Francisco and learning to love photography. He shares what makes Chinatown so special, learning about other neighborhoods later in life, and even some of his favorite restaurants. Check back Thursday for Part 2, when Gordon will talk about coming to own his photo store—Glass Key Photo.

We recorded this podcast at Glass Key Photo in August 2018.
