Yang Yong

Yang Yong is a chinese artist who uses a group of people to show the attitudes of young people living in urban China. Most of his images are shot at night in the streets. Most images show boredom or a sense of waiting. Their attitudes and postures are said to reflect the attitudes of youth culture from the 1990’s. Intimate photography uses pathology to reveal emotional lives, so in this way it is “Intimate Photography.” Yong also uses the aesthetic of showing non-events (being bored and uncommunicative) and strained social scenes.
