ABOUT

Roger Yu is a photographer based in Washington, DC. He is a North Carolina native and graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He photographs lifestyle and fashion editorials, portraits, and events. His love of boxing led him to shoot the National Collegiate Boxing Association Championships in 2014, 2015 and 2017.

Roger is a mixed-media photographer, utilizing both digital as well as analog film photography. His passion for film was ignited the first time he stepped foot inside his high school darkroom. For his own personal projects he shoots medium format, 35mm, and instant film (Polaroid, Impossible Project, Fujifilm packfilm).

When he's not spending time between his homes in DC and North Carolina, Roger travels as much as possible. His journeys to Asia have greatly influenced and fueled his creative vision.

For me, photography is not a means by which to create beautiful art, but a unique way of encountering genuine reality
