Yang Wei Han uses photography to recreate seemingly ordinary moments of daily life, of which the complex meanings are often revealed later in remembrance. Consisting of a wide range of subject matters and photographic processes, his work continuously investigates the elusive nature of memory imagery alongside the foundation and materiality of the photographic medium.
