Art Lovers in DC

"All the magic starts with a blank piece of paper!"

- -

A day capturing the art lovers.

The first series are captured at the "paper room" as people called it. It's the latest exhibition in Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC called "What Absence is Made of." Ann Hamilton creates site-specific, multimedia installations that are simultaneously immersive and ephemeral in Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC. Combining the sounds of mechanization with the motorized release of sheets of translucent white paper, which gently descend from the ceiling, at hand speaks to the decline of manual labor in the wake of technological innovation. Though the paper accrues on the gallery floor in a sculptural “drift,” the effect of the installation remains one of loss and absence; the paper is blank, the movement is random, and the hand of the artist remains invisible.



The second series are captured in front of Mark Bradford's one of the largest works to date - "Pickett’s Charge" - that spans nearly 400 linear feet.

Mark Bradford works with a combination of colored paper and cutting, tearing, and scraping through the layers, Bradford weaves past and present, illusion and abstraction, inviting visitors to reconsider how narratives about American history are shaped and contested.

Pickett’s Charge builds upon the Hirshhorn’s continued commitment to showcasing the ways that artists respond to the unique political and cultural climate of their time.

Evening with Kristy - Shape of You =An evening with Kristy Yang Photography=
So honored to be invited by the Howard County Photographers MeetUp Group to give a presentation on my photography! I am so flattered when the host Mike Allen told me the class was 90% full the first day he posted the event and now there are 10 people on the waitlist since the space can only have 30 people! I'm going to be giving a presentation of how I fall in love with the "Shape of You" 
Looking forward to a fun night over glass of wine and photography! 
If you are interested, check out the registration page at and I may livestream for a part if too many people are on the waitlist. We will be meeting at BareBones Grill this Thursday (Feb 8) at 6:45pm and my presentation will be at 7:45pm. See you soon!



Last night was a success!! Such a pleasure meeting everyone and giving a presentation on my photography. Thank you Mike Allen and Barry for having me at the Howard County Photography Group! Seeing how people staying extra time to ask questions, excited about the materials, and interested in learning more makes me so happy ❤️ Mike was so kind to pass along some sweet feedback from the members today, so blessed!

Modern Twist in Classical Rendition

She deserves the love of a lifetime
because she's a badass
with a tender hearts, 
and a hurricane in a teacup.

She is the kind of woman
you can count on in battle, 
the kind of woman
you can get lost with
just looking at the stars.

She's the kind of woman
you read about in poems,
yet she is as real
as real can be.

A modern twist in a classical rendition in DC.

Puppy Xmas!!

Love is how excited your dogs get when you get home!!

When Terry asked me to photograph him and his 5 furry babies for Christmas and showed me their Christmas outfits, I was already melting because of cuteness overload. As we are taking photos outside, people walked by are in awe and all stopped to take photos of these cuties. Their puppy eyes just made me swoon ❤️  If you ever have a dog, you know they just become the family who you can never live without. And of course, they will be a part of the family holiday celebrations, too!See more of these cuties below and wishing you all a very happy Christmas!!

Drops of Jupiter

And tell me, did Venus blow your mind

Was it everything you wanted to find

And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there."

Autumn Romance

When I'm constrained, I yearned to create more.

- -

During a dance practice, a flip trick went wrong and my toe was dislocated. 2 X-rays, 4 shots, and multiple adjustments later at the ER it's still not completely set back in. I wasn't home until 5am that day but my teammates stayed beside me. Funny thing is when I asked the nurse after the procedure, "Is it normal to be hurting?" She looked at me eyes wide open and said, "Did you see how your toe was?!" okay... guess I still have humor after all this lol 

I went to the specialist the next day and I'm going to be stuck in a walking pneumatic boot for 2 weeks and will take at least a month to heal. Fortunately, another round of x-rays showed it's now properly relocated and no surgery is needed. In Chinese, we called this the biggest fortune out of misfortune. I'm not letting my banged up toe stop me from capturing the beauty of the world. So here're some colors of Autumn I have to capture today.
