My name is Katelyn Wang, and I’m a 19-year-old photographer from Los Angeles, California!

My photography aims to showcase the way I see the world, with a focus on the beauty that is present all around us. In direct confrontation and absorption of human life, I find beauty and a drive to consistently look deeper and more precisely. In the indirect observation of human beings, I find beauty in process, routine, behavior, lived life. In landscapes, roadways, cut-outs of the larger spheres and sectors of terrestrial existence, I find a reason for spiritual hope in the beautifully imperfect and endlessly various world in which we dwell and observe. Together, these works showcase my different definitions of beauty, collected like postcards from various parts of the world and various moments of my life. In this way, I participate in the formation and sequence of the images, lending not just artistic perspective, but personal situated-ness and honesty. 

Here, there is room for all of us. This is my adventure. Seven billion more are waiting. Find yours.
