Jialin Long

Born in China, currently live in Dublin, Ireland. 

My name is Jialin, I am a visual artist mainly work with photography still and moving images. Currently I am completing my BA(Hons) Photography in IADT, Ireland. In my practice, I do not focus on one genre of photography such as portraiture or landscape. Instead I am trying to explore various visual expressions from the medium itself. My works include large format fine art photography project, documentary projects to reflect social reform as well as conceptual projects of feminism and equality. 

My work is driven by transforming ideas and storytelling. I often feel that I have a thousand words to say and they speak through my images. Photography for me is a channel to speak, to communicate and to pass my thought to other people. I hope my audience can understand my work and it can make them rethinking the questions that I raised or the statement that I made.
