The photography explored in The Asian Male series was in part a way for me to deal with my dissatisfaction with my own physical beauty. Meeting and photographing guys I found attractive was a projection of what I wasn’t. I longed to be lean-fit to which was not. I lived vicariously through them, in their admiration to which I would envision myself to be.

Yip Fung Art
The best art is spiritual and contains within it the ability to heal and the power to elevate humanity. Shamans of the past were essentially artists, being able to reach into the realms of alternate dimensions to bring back wisdom, knowledge and guidance. We need them now.
Alternate states of reality fascinate me. And my interest in consciousness and science intersecting at the junction of philosophy is apparent in my work, much like Taoism and Buddhism teachings colliding with physicists on the makings of the universe.
Something about me….
Who I miss the most....
A famous person I would like to meet...
