Leah yan

Working through photography, Yanyan Zhao uses a highly feminine approach to explore desire and intimate spaces, and how they interact with external society. Her work is often biographical and self-explorative, reflecting on and analysing her own psychological world, her past experiences, hidden thoughts and fantasies, often deeply intertwined with the social identity of “women”, especially “East-Asian women” in a transnational cultural context. Born in 1997, in Chengdu, China. She currently lives and studies in London, receiving her MA from the University of Arts London.
