My name is Julia Wang and I am a documentary photographer, educator, and law student based in Brooklyn, New York. I am currently a 2L at CUNY Law School studying how the law shapes and actively maintains systems of oppression. This summer, I’m working as an intern in Queens Legal Services’ Immigration Advocacy Project and hope to become an immigration lawyer in the future.
Whether I am photographing, teaching, or supporting clients’ legal needs, I strive to create an environment that fosters collaboration, respect, and personal agency. My goal is to make traditionally gatekept knowledge open and accessible. I have worked as a youth photography teacher throughout NYC, an English teacher in China, an art workshop coordinator, a studio assistant, and oddly enough - a physics tutor in high school.
I’m a proud of member of collectives like Authority Collective and Diversify Photo that are working to decolonize and demand equity in the visual industry. I am also a signatory on the Photo Bill of Rights.
I enjoy cooking, eating dumplings, knitting, anime, and replaying old Pokémon games. I can speak Mandarin Chinese and very limited Spanish.
Feel free to reach out via email or instagram DM for any questions, thoughts, etc~ Though in law school, I am enthusiastically open for assignments, collaborations, and/or commissions because I have to pay my bills and support my orange cat, Spicy. ︎
