Read Paul’s Stories
Paul Yan was born in Taiwan and has been working as a music producer and recording/mixing engineer for over 25 years. Based in China and Taiwan, he specialises in the rock, pop and electronica genres. Some of his music production work has been lauded as rock classics by the Chinese media.
Ever since he was a child, Paul has the propensity to stare for long at a scene or an object and let his eyes and mind be fixated on the interplay of lights and shades that interact with each other like actors in a drama or chords and rhythms in a piece of music.
After he started to make images with the iPhone avidly in mid-2015, photography rapidly became his alternative creative outlet beside his music production work. Extracting beauty from everyday life while telling stories through the lens gives him tremendous joy. It also acts as a form of meditation that enables him to have a deeper insight into the fleeting nature of human conditions and worldly phenomena.
Being aware that the photographs one makes fully reflect his or her state of being, Paul firmly believes that the ultimate way to become a better photographer or artist of any discipline is to practice becoming a better person each day.
