About Me

“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”  — Jonathan Swift

Wiwienne YANG

As someone who often looses the sense of existence, photography is doubtlessly a relatively unrestrained way to go about the world. When I wander around with my camera uninterveniently, the imageries I gather on my journeys are not means to explore the world, but ways through which I piece myself together. To put it another way, photography is never ‘artistic creation’ out of nothing, instead, what I can do is to attempt to grab the scenes that capture me, using my own logic of deduction and leaving my signature. Be it portrait, street snapshot or scenery, every photo is like a piece of my self-portrait, or a moment in the unconscious, each pointing to myself. I don’t think I’ll every find out how I look despite the piecing together, all that I can do is follow those traces of had been’s or continues to be’s, and, carry on.



Wiwienne is a portrait and fine art photographer, studied photography in Paris, now based in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
