Yuyang Liu Shanghai photographers

Yuyang Liu was born in Sichuan in 1991 and he is now based between Chengdu and Shanghai. With his unique vision and perspective, as well as the sincerity, patience, and adaptability required for documentary photography, he covers issues that range from the daily life in North Korea, to the transformation of the energy industry in Shanxi; from fishermen’s work in Senegal to young Uyghur teens dreams about football; from the massive urbanisation process in China to a Cambodian music school aiming for everyone; and from an LGTB wedding in the sea of Japan to ordinary people’s stories in Chunyun, the CNY Transportation in Guangzhou. Yuyang Liu tells stories with pictures.

He became a jury of ADC 98th Annual Awards in the photography section, has been selected as one of the 'Nine Chinese Photographers You Need to Follow' by TIME magazine and emerging photographer of PDN 30 in 2017. He has won Magnum Foundation Human Rights and Photography Fellowship, Ian Parry Scholarship, and Abigail Cohen Fellowship in Documentary Photography.

His work has been published on TIME, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and exhibited in New York, London, Shanghai, Paris, and Beijing. He collaborates with NGOs such as UNICEF, Greenpeace, WWF, and Save the Children. He insists unique and meaningful moments can convey the brand spirit and campaign storytelling, and real moments can touch the audiences. His commercial clients include Apple, Nike, Airbnb, Harbin Beer, Xiaomi, and JD.

Yuyang Liu is represented by Bloc Productions.
