Emily Yang is a visual artist working with photography and video. She is born in Shanghai, China, currently lives in Brooklyn, New York and Shanghai.

Her interests include the expanded meaning of the photograph by connecting 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.
