Yuxing Chen (b.1998), with a bachelor's degree in Visual Communication Design, completed her master's degree in MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at LCC, UAL.

Photography has expanded her perspective as a new approach to narrative and representation. Her photographic practice is centred around the creation and discussion of the decolonisation of difference, the exoticism of Orientalism and the gaze that it brings.
