Enter the world of photographer Ina Jang, whose delicate and intimate works leave a lasting impression. Her elegant employment of colour, form, graphics and lighting create a visual feast of aesthetic pleasure.
Having graduated New York’s School of Visual Arts , Jang has, as the eloquent artist Jonas Cuenin put it, continued to blur the lines creatively between fashion, photography, fine art and sculpture.
Her latest series “In A World Without Words” (2013) Jang turns lines, compositions and colours into an encapsulating amalgamation of fashion and art.
She explains, “I don't think I had specific inspirations. I knew that I wanted to make things that look void, elegant, unsettling, anonymous, and playful. But I wasn't trying to communicate or convey any special meanings through the series. It was more of a playground for me where I continuously enjoyed my ideas and celebrating the medium of photography.”
“The photographs are based on the drawings I did on my moleskins. Most times, I draw my ideas first and try to remake them with camera. I used to like the fact its result is instant compared to paintings. Now, I respond more to specific ideas that can only be done photographically. It's a way of seeing and thinking things in-and-out of camera interests me most.”
Jang’s unique ability to capture and stimulate her audience will ensure we will be seeing much more of her work in the future.
