Yu-Sheng Chiu is a Taiwanese photo-based artist residing in Ottawa, Canada. Her work primarily focuses on the exploration of identity intertwined with a strong sense of solitude as well as the curiosity towards feminism, GenZ cultures, and other fields she lands interests in. With the intentional use of colour, light, and shape, Chiu hopes to invite her viewers to engage and experience the world through her lens.

From 2020 to 2021, Chiu worked as a photographer for The Argosy, the first independent press run by students in Canada. She also founded Asian Women Photographers in April 2021 in response of the lack of safe space for Asian female-identifying lens-based artists to create and network.


Her work has appeared in 3rd_Year_Photo.tif at Mount Allison University (2021), School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa’s Open House (2021, 2022), Ottawa-based zine Do It for the Grain (2021, 2022), Exhibition No. 17 at SPAO, Expressing the Internal: Self beyond the Selfie curated by Niniane Kelley for Analog Forever Magazine, and the list continues to grow.

Throughout her years studying at Mount Allison University and now at SPAO, Chiu has gained experience working with medium format, 4x5, and DSLR cameras. She also runs an instagram account under the handle @yclaformosana, where her most recent work and personal lifestyle can be found.
