Yai Deng is a nineteen year old emerging photographer and filmmaker whose family fled from civil war in South Sudan and emigrated to Texas where he was born. He is currently studying filmmaking at college in Connecticut, the influences of which definitely lend a very cinematic and surreal style to his photography.
“I come from a lower class family, which has helped me cherish everything that I’m blessed with. I have a difficult time expressing myself verbally, so I found my voice through photography and filmmaking.”
