Robin Yong

Robin Yong (Yong Yao Siong) is a multi-award winning Travel Photographer and enjoys traveling to exotic destinations to befriend and photograph the locals. He is best known for his work on the Omo Valley tribes in Ethiopia, the Venetian Masked models in Venice, the Bokator boxers of Cambodia and the Maikos of Kyoto. He calls these works as his Travel Portraits, his Art of Travel Medicine. For most of his works, Robin does not use flash, reflectors or artificial lighting, depending purely on natural lighting alone. The images are often dramatic, colourful and extremely beautiful. For Robin, every photo must look like a movie poster...

Over the past few years, Robin has quickly become one of the most popular and influential photographers at the Venice Carnevale and within the past few months, Flowers of Ethiopia alone has gathered numerous awards, finalist status and honourable mentions in many International photography competitions, including Alfred Fried Awards, Australia's Top Emerging Photographers, International Photography Awards, Istanbul Photo Awards, Sienna International Photo Awards, Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) Awards etc.
