Daryl Luk, PhD, Board Member of BCPA
Daryl Luk is a board member of the Boston Chinese Photography Association – BCPA (thebcpa.org). He served as the president of BCPA in 2013 and 2016. Daryl’s photography experience started with his father’s Nikkormat when he was 15 in Hong Kong. That film photography hobby lasted for one year only before he put a pause for many decades. Years later, when he settled in Boston, he resumed photo taking with a Rebel XS – the lowest entry level of Canon DSLR at that time. He has been having a lot of fun in photography since then, and to him, photography means more than simply taking pictures. It is a way to connect the world. Taking pictures increases his awareness of the unusual from the usual, draws his attention to the miraculous from the ordinary. Daryl learned to appreciate beauty and believes it is everywhere as long as you open your mind and your heart to feel and observe it. It is a process to first observe, become aware, then experience and feel.
Daryl is also a board member of NECINA – New England Chinese Information Networking Association (necina.org) and the president of NECINA in 2009-2010 and 2005-2006. Daryl was appointed by the Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney to be a member of the Massachusetts Asian American Commission to advise the Governor on matters related to Asian American affairs.
陸德禮是波士顿华人摄影协会（BCPA）的董事会成员，并于2013 与2016年间担任协会的主席。他的摄影生涯始于15岁在香港时，父亲的一部Nikkormat相机，然而这份摄影爱好在当时只持续了一年就暂停了。直到多年后，当他在波士顿定居下来时，他才又重新拿出了一部Rebel XS（当时最入门级别的单反）来继续追逐阔别多年的摄影梦。对于他而言，摄影不仅仅是单纯的照相，更是一种连结世界的方式。摄影使他从平凡中看到了不平凡，让他能从日常生活中发现奇迹。通过摄影，陸德禮学会了欣赏美，并且相信只要敞开心扉去观察、去感受，生活中处处皆是美。这是一个观察、觉知、体验、感受的美妙过程。陆德礼也是纽英伦中华资讯网路协会（NECINA）的董事会成员和2005-2006、2009-2010年间的协会主席。他被马萨诸塞州州州长Mitt Romney任命为马萨诸塞州亚裔委员会的成员，就与亚裔美国人有关的事宜向州长提供意见。
