AEVOE invites its newest international photographer and contributor on board, Yatender. Introduced to us by our Vietnam/Melbourne correspondant and equally amazing photographer Thy Tran, Yatender's work inhabits a new wave of stylised photography emerging out of Asia at the moment; one that uses the human body in abstract ways and obscures natural lighting for moody atmospheres. We speak to Yatender about her influences and the artistic scene in Vietnam.
What is your photography process? Do you plan your shoots with lots of detail, or is everything more spontaneous?
I always think true beauty needs no fanciful words, so I attempt to capture moments around me as much as possible through the camera, mostly it happened spontaneously.
Which artists inspire you the most?
Right now only movies.
Can you describe Vietnam's creative scene in one word?
Where do you find your models? Are they professional or just your friends?
I've been using myself mostly, and sometimes I will ask my friends or strangers to become my models.
Are there any other art fields other than photography that you like to work in?
What are your ultimate goals for the future as a photographer?
