Featured photographer


Working in the Imaging Department at the Art Institute of Chicago provided Vivienne Luo Wang with access to a large amount of archival images in an institutional environment. Through selecting these archival images she started an on-going project, Penetrate, which is a compilation of found photographs in addition of her own photos. By sequencing and editing these photos in the form of a series, she questions the copyright issues and explore the stories behind these found images as well as the alteration of photography itself: what is the relationship between historic moments and present life?
