Codie Yan

Codie Yan is a photographic essayist, experiment filmmaker, and mixed media artist currently based in Syracuse, NY.


In my work, I seek "strangeness" out of "familiarity." I explore the possibility through physical entities in daily occurrences to reflect the intangible texture of the dreamscape— a blend of vivid color, visceral vignettes, and a little bit of poetry.
