Born 1997, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia
Lives and works Unceded Gadigal land

Dorcas Tang 邓佳颖 is a Chinese-Malaysian photographer working, thinking, and playing on unceded Gadigal land. She is interested in the crucial intersections of photography, history, and archival silences. At the core of her practice is care for her communities while grappling with the intrinsic violence of the camera and archival practices. Her audiovisual projects include Los Paisanos del Puerto, examining the Chinese diaspora of Costa Rica; Love Me Long Time, exploring desire, intimacy, and Asian identity; and Staging Portraits which looks at queer kinship through facilitating community photo sessions at The Bearded Tit. Ultimately, she seeks to encourage critical dialogue through creating socially engaged visual narratives.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
