About the Artist
Photographer and performer William Yang is one of Australia’s most celebrated independent artists, renowned for his poignant work exploring social diversity, belonging and travel. Born of Chinese Australian parents, Yang grew up strongly identifying as Australian although he looked Chinese. He suffered because he did not feel he identified with the way the world perceived him, and vice versa. Moreover, he realized at a young age he was also gay.
