“If you choose photography as your medium, then express it like no words can.”
When Yang first left school as a fresh-faced aspiring photographer, these were the words uttered to him by his mentor. Fast forward 9 years, with little more lines on his still relatively fresh face, and a whole lot more life experiences later, these are the very same words that keep him inspired.
Originally trained as a Director, Yang’s vision and versatility have brought him across the globe across every continent, producing imagery for a wide array of clients including advertising agencies design companies and various MNCs. His work, be it commissioned or personal is a unique blend of craft and naturalism.
In 2015, he was commissioned by the Land Transport Authority of Singapore to document the construction of Singapore’s MRT system. The project culminated in a solo exhibition titled Those Who Move Us, featuring Yang’s trademark atmospheric and cinematic vision.
He is currently working on more great images, a short film about love in the city, playing with the stray cats in his neighbourhood, finding the best economic rice in the country and last but not least riding across more mountains on his trusty snowboard.
