Su Yang

Su Yang is a Chinese born photographer who lives and works in Switzerland. His work is intensely intimate — bodies are captured, moments are made and memories are sealed.  

Hailing from Jiangxi, Yang spent much of his early childhood surrounded by nature. When first starting out, Yang photographed landscapes and scenes without people. This is rather surprising for the emerging fashion photographer. 

After graduating in 2011 with an undergraduate degree in Communication and Design, Yang worked with international clients and fashion publications.

Despite receiving commercial recognition for his editorial work, Yang now focuses his attention on his personal projects. For him, photography is a vehicle to express himself. Themes of culture and identity are explored within his work. 

Keeping his Chinese heritage at the heart of his work, Shanghai Passengers, is one of his most memorable projects. Yang’s striking images tell a tale of the fleeting interactions tourists have with China’s largest city. His recent series, Birds, the flowers, and them, is also a navigation of his nationality, something he is at war with since leaving his homeland. “Now I understand my work as conveying a sense that it’s mine,” he told Neocha in 2018. “It’s pretty individualised.”
