Julia Wang (b. 1993) is a documentary photographer, educator, and researcher based in New York City. Born in New Jersey to an immigrant family with roots from Taiwan and China, her focus is studying how multiculturalism manifests itself in our perception, identity, and behavior. Through her work, she wants to explore how photography can be used to claim authorship and history, as well as interdisciplinary and collaborative storytelling.

She received her BFA in 2016 from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts in Photography & Psychology. She has worked as a teaching assistant and coordinator at the International Center of Photography's Community Programs and participated in the Eddie Adams Workshop XXVIII. She is mostly fluent in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish, and hopes to one day master French and Arabic. Aside from visual storytelling, she is an avid fan of lox, sci-fi, and books.
