Rona Chang was born in Chungli, Taiwan, a town that is famous for its spicy beef noodle soup. After receiving her BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art she worked as a photographer for the Asian Art Department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for nine years, where she photographed all of the Japanese woodblock prints, Indian paintings, and Chinese handscrolls in the collection. In 2007 she was an associate artist at the Atlantic Center of the Arts residency under the guidance of Thomas Struth. She is a recipient of En Foco's New Works #14 Fellowship. In 2011, she was awarded a grant by Queens Council on the Arts with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs for her series Moving Forward, Standing Still. Rona still lives in Queens, and travels often, attributing her desire to travel to her many childhood moves and her love for packing.
