Yu-Chen Chiu is a Taiwan born documentary photographer and interdisciplinary artist currently based in Brooklyn, NY.

Her work focuses on the notion of migration and belonging. Born and raised in Taiwan, and emigrated to the United States. Living as an immigrant, her experience of internalized cultural conflict has strongly influenced her artistic approach and the themes she pursues.

She has also pursued a Masters in Communication Studies and Film Productions at NYU and has studied photography at the Cooper Union and International Center of Photography (ICP).

Yu-Chen is the fellow of the En Foco 2018 Photography Fellowship. Her artwork has been exhibited and screened worldwide, such as at the Chelsea Art Museum, the South Street Seaport Museum, and the Sony Wonder Lab Museum in New York City, USA; Musee du Louvre Paris, France; and VIDEOFORMES in Clermont-Ferrand, France. She is the Gold award recipient for New Creation Jury Award of VIDEOFORMES in France; the awardee of En Foco 2018 Photography Fellowship in U.S.A; the Winner for 2015 EYEEM Photo Awards (The Traveller Category); 2013 B+W Magazine Single Image Winner; second place winner of Festfoto Brazil 2018; two Silvers for Paris PX3; the Finalist of 2017 Athens Photo Festival, Dotphotozine Award for Excellence in Photography, Photolucida Critical Mass Top 200, and Reportage Photo Festival in East Australia, and the honorable mention for IPA (International Photography Awards), Julia Margaret Cameron Award.
