QIU Yangzi (Yangzi), a London-based Chinese visual artist, immerses herself in the realms of experimental philosophical analog photography.

With roots in mainland China and a penchant for global exploration, her journey intertwines education and artistic discovery. Since 2012, she has refined her craft through workshops led by esteemed masters of art photography across the US, Europe, and China. Yangzi's work serves as a quest to unravel "What is Reality" and the essence of self-existence, embracing chance as a core element in her creative process. By challenging conventions and exploring new presentation methods, she pushes the boundaries of photography's definition and expression. Yangzi's art beckons viewers to ponder the fluidity of existence and the enigmas it holds.
