User Bio

I picked up a camera age 13, inspired by my mother and the gift of a Nikon F3. Although now using digital Nikon and Canon cameras, I remain fascinated by the magic of 35mm and the traditional developing process.

My travels to Vietnam and Cambodia have provided great inspiration and experiences living in Amsterdam, Stockholm and the Bavarian Alps have fostered a love of abstract textures.

Moving to East London in 1998, I founded the collective Rawbeats and documented many parties, music events and festivals. By following the emergent street art scene around Europe he has accumulated an extensive archive of photography covering posters, stencils, graffiti and sticker art.

I have another portfolio, specific to product and still life work, at: My street photography and archive can be viewed at: Follow me @yeshen on Twitter.

I also work as a web project manager, supporting creatives in building their online presence.
