Qingyun Wang photographs ethereal scenes of his current hometown of San Francisco. With subject matter that includes churches, skylines, and the Golden Gate Bridge, Wang’s photography captures the interplay between man-made constructions and fog, light, and space. A self-taught photographer, pieces such as Jigsaw have an almost painterly quality, until the viewer realizes it is a photograph of a window reflection. Wang states “the mirage in the window is like a jigsaw puzzle made up of many small worlds.”
Originally from Hangzhou, China, Wang arrived to the United States to further his art education. While trained in graphic design, Wang began dabbling in photography in order to augment content for his design projects. What he discovered is a strong connection to photography’s solitary, tranquil nature in the pursuit of landscape vistas. Hard of hearing since the age of 10, photography provides Wang a meaningful outlet of expression.
Wang is a student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where he is pursuing a BFA in Interior Architecture and Design.
