Michelle Watt is a Hong Kong-born photographer based in Brooklyn. She specialises in staging conceptual narratives with a whimsical flair, often addressing themes of freedom and restriction within cultural and sexual identity. Her portrait and fashion work engenders stories about the female minority experience, with the aim of giving life to unique standards of beauty and culture, including ones informed by her Chinese American background. She finds joy in assembling tiny discrete pieces to create vast meaningful worlds, embedding hidden ‘Easter eggs’ as varying social commentary.
