Wei Ding is a Chinese-American photographer currently based in Shanghai. Born in the age of the Internet, Wei taught himself the discipline of photography through YouTube and other online platforms under the belief that artists need to create themselves outside of the current system of Art.
Wei has been active in the online community and had initiated and completed an online photography marathon project — 365PhotoChallenge. It is a project where he committed to creating a new photography work every day for 365 days, which became the soil for his own artistic exploration. His photography work has been published as featured stories by Neocha, i-D China, Magazin “Konfuzius Institut”, KEYI Magazine and Radii China.
Wei Ding is the 1st place category winner of 2020 Budapest International Foto Awards.
