Qiu Yang (*1981, Beijing) is a Chinese photographer and director who lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 2007, shortly after obtaining his BFA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, Yang established his eponymous studio and began working in commercial and self-initiated projects.
His images have been featured in art and fashion magazines, advertising campaigns, art exhibitions and film. His editorial and commercial commissions include AnOther Man Magazine, Christian Dior, COS Magazine, Hermès, The Gentlewoman, Google, Kenzo, Lexus, Nowness.com, Vogue US and Wallpaper Magazine, to name a few.
In recent years Yang has included film direction in his creative practice. ‘The Resistance’, a short film commissioned by Nowness, has earned much critical acclaim.
