About The Work

Drury Street High Rise in Philadelphia shows the view outside of my hotel room in November 2019, when my family and I visited for the marathon weekend. I was just looking out the window and felt compelled to capture this narrow high rise and the much more substantial Wanamaker building behind it. Buildings in American urban centers tend to look the same, but if you pay attention, unique qualities manifest themselves like personalities. Like what’s the story behind the window of that one yellow-lit office that weekend? The faded Blum Store advertisement hints at life in another era. What other stories do the other buildings on the block have to share?

, b. 1971

Creative projects fuel Francis Hsueh’s life. A compliance professional in the financial services world by day, he has co-directed two feature-length films, released electronic music on various music labels, and has spent the last few years working on a graphic novel while sketching his fellow commuters on the subway. He loves the challenge of depicting life in all its detail, no matter the medium, but he is particularly drawn to the ephemeral, yet timeless, qualities of watercolor. Hsueh lives in Washington Heights with his wife and two sons.
