Yu-Chen Chiu is a Taiwan born documentary photographer and interdisciplinary artist currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
Her work focuses on the notion of (im)migration and belonging. Born and raised in Taiwan, and emigrated to the United States. Living as an immigrant, her experience of internalized cultural conflict has strongly influenced her artistic approach and the themes she pursues.
Her background includes a B.A. in English Literature from Chinese Culture University and an M.P.S. degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University and has studied photography at International Center of Photography (ICP).
Yu-Chen is the fellow of the En Foco 2018 Photography Fellowship. Yu-Chen’s artwork has been exhibited worldwide at venues like the Chelsea Art Museum, and the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City, Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Indiana, USA, and Musee du Louvre Paris, France.
