Smartphone Snaps: William Yang’s life and studio

Feature

“If we think about Daoism, I just try to apply it to my daily life: I suppose it’s being mindful of everything.” — William Yang

William Yang, smartphone self in his studio.

In our July/August magazine we profiled ten artists, and asked each artist to document their life with their smartphone. The resulting images are intimate, personal, humorous and poignant, and give a unique insight into lives and practices during the country’s national coronavirus lockdown.

In the images below, photographer William Yang – whose art speaks of love and death, crisis and identity – has sent us snaps of his life in Sydney, capturing his shrines and studio, and small ephemera from his day-to-day. You can read our profile on Yang, where he talks through his latest work centred on a man named Joe, who, in 1979, Yang put into a taxi and farewelled.
