THIS INBOX IS NOT MONITORED.
I will not give photos away for free. I charge a small but reasonable licensing fee.
My email address is email@example.com. Please email me outside of Flickr!
All photographs are © Kathryn Yu.
Prints are available upon request. Sorry, I don't give out the original files for desktop wallpapers, collages, t-shirts, etc.
My work has appeared in SPIN Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Pitchfork, the New York Times, New York Magazine, Metromix, amNY, and others. My clients include A&M/Octone Records, Clear Channel Digital, and Beggars Group USA.
My favorite thing to shoot is concerts: anywhere from abandoned ships, Chinese restaurants, dark nightclubs, ornate sit-down theaters, old churches, parks, and more.
