Interview with: Kethy Wang

Kethy Wang is a photographer based in Vancouver who uses photography as her medium of choice to capture the natural beauty of her subjects. Her images are infused with a genuine beauty, sensuality and intimacy. The series that we are featuring is from Kethy’s recent shoot with the beautiful Nalani Weston…


Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you first got started in photography.
I am just a girl from a small town in Asia; grew up in four different countries, traveled over ten and always held a camera. The work I produce now evolved from a series of roses I edited during my adolescent years which aroused me in a unique way.

How would you define your photographic style? What do you want your images to say to the audience?
I would say my style is very niche in the erotica or intimate category. I absorb and learn very quickly from anything such as photographs, music, my surroundings and even a simple conversation. My images should feel as if you are right there, comforting and whatever emotion it feeds you at that moment, nothing else.

Self portraits are a big part of your folio; what is it about self-portraiture that appeals to you?
I’m glad you noticed. I actually never intended to shoot anyone else; I used myself as a learning experience. This is when I started exploring myself and my sexuality. I don’t show my face because a facial expression can hide or mean many emotions. I found the body empowering and it’s gifted with muscle tensions and relaxation which means one thing never the other. Like sculptures, our bodies are a work of art which appealed to me so I celebrate it, liberate it really.

Who or what are your main sources of inspiration?
I have been staring at this question for the past few hours. The answer is everything, everyone and not just that… it’s the great ones.

What is next for you? Are you working on any projects that you can tell us about?
Oh I can’t answer that; you’ll have to find out…
