Miao Jia Xin is a Chinese photographer based in New York City. Miao Jia Xin was born in Shanghai. Several years ago he moved to the United States and devoted himself entirely to art. He accepts camera as a tool that documents his art. So in fact it doesn’t matter if the quality of photography is low. Sometimes he even is interested in poor quality of the pictures he takes. So he is absolutely okay with it. Everything depends on his purposes and circumstances. He tries to use all the opportunities he has at the moment.

John Clang is a photographer from Singapore. He lived for a long period of time in New York City working as a photographer for Hermes, Nike, Godiva. But today his photography is labeled as art photography.
The project Remembering strangers (2010) depicts disguised people from Mumbai, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo, Naples. All of them are wearing the masks. The initial idea of Clang was to depict his own impressions of strangers. Every single day we meet people which we do not know. And by the end of the day we can hardly describe the features at least one of them. The same idea concerns Clang, “By reducing their facial details to the absolute minimum, it allows them to remain as strangers in my mind, preserving a truer representation of how they have entered my life and my memories”.
