FION HUNG-Ching Yan (b.1993) works primarily in staged photography and photo collage, presenting them in the forms of installation and books. Her photography practice challenges the nature of humanity, traditional stereotypes, and our contemporary understanding of intergenerational trauma inspired by her family’s conflicts. In her ongoing research, Hung delves into exploring the dark side of human nature, inspired by the aftermath of the family's rupture. Within this topic, Hung is currently studying the concept of Eugenics and how it influences society’s treatment and understanding of disabilities (especially the group of people who inherit genetic disorders) under capitalism and the industrial movement in both history and the modern world.

Hung is a visual artist, a researcher, and an art educator. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Hon) in Visual Arts from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2016 and completed a master's degree in Photography from the London College of Communication, UAL in 2023. Her artworks have been exhibited internationally, including the Chiang Mai Photo Festival 2017, Hong Kong International Photo Festival 2020, FORMAT Photo Festival 2020, and Copenhagen Photo Festival 2020. Her project The Skeletons In The Closet (2021-2022) was selected as one of the finalists of the Hahnemühle Student Award and was exhibited in Photo London in 2023. It is also exhibited as a solo show at the South London Gallery as part of Peckham24's programs in 2023.
