Johnny Tang

I’m a photographer who shoots surreal and cinematic looking self-portraits on 35mm film. Held in balance between eye candy and mind candy is where I want my work to live, and my working process is constantly struggling to find that balance. World of One, the work that I present to you today, is about the grey areas of life, and draws much of its inspiration from the kinds of conversations we have with ourselves. By positioning opposing actions or emotions together in the same frame, these images seek to illuminate that although the elements seem to contradict one another, they are simply different expressions of the same personality.
