Daren You was born in China in 1990. He’s currently living and studying in the San Francisco Bay Area. With a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, he loves to use different kinds of experiments to explore the relationships and limitations between the painting, photography, and video. He’s also a super shy person, so he loves to use photography as a language to describe the unexplained world.
His work has been exhibited in Baltimore and San Francisco. His work also has been featured in LensCulture Magazine, NewDawnPaper Magazine and the official blog of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Daren is currently a MFA candidate of Photography at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA.
