Self Inverted, Junlin Zhu

Alum of the Department of Photography & Imaging, Junlin Zhu, recently share some good news with us:

I was picked by James Estrin and a few other editors from New York Times Portfolio Review to be 1 of the 10 emerging artists for Photoville's Emergi Cubes program. During Photoville, I will be showing my thesis project, Self Inverted.  My work will be exhibited as an installation on a ~46" cube, and it will be in the public space.

朱俊林 Junlin Zhu (b. 1994 in Mianyang, Sichuan, China) is a visual artist working primarily within lens-based mediums. The theme of his work centers on his intersectional identities of being gay and Asian, along with an inspection of the idea of mainstream versus other (insider/outsider).

With a personal interest in facilitating diversity, and an understanding of the importance of anti-hegemonic representation, his work aims to provide a sphere for Asian faces and bodies in the visual world. Junlin holds a BFA in Photography and Imaging from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. Junlin lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
