Emily Yang is a visual artist working with photography and video. She was born in Shanghai, China. She currently lives in Boston, the United States where she is pursuing her MFA in Photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She received a B.A in Broadcasting and Film-making from Shanghai University in 2014.

Her interests include the expanded meaning of the photograph by connected different contexts in which the subjects are placed. Yang often asks of her to pose for the camera to investigate the power dynamics between the mechanical eye of the camera, the photographer and the subject. Instead of a directly confrontational approach, she insists on picturing the subtle manifestations of the relationships, using photographic framing, focusing and distortion to her advantage.
