Photographer Albert Chong joins the WonderRoot Podcast to discuss his early life growing up in Jamaica and some of the important decisions that shaped his 30-year career as he moved to and throughout the United States. Chong also highlights some of the challenges he faced in the art industry as a black artist, and what inspires him to move back to Jamaica in the near future.
