Stephanie Mei-Ling


Stephanie Mei-Ling is a Taiwanese/Black-American documentary photographer based between Brooklyn and Los Angeles. Through her work she explores such layered issues as the complexity of intersectional identity; elevating the narrative of invisible communities; society's fetishization of marginalized subcultures; the universality of otherness through a global lens; and the appropriation, re-appropriation and reclaiming of cultural narratives. A largely self-taught visual storyteller, Stephanie’s photographs have been featured in Vice and with clients like Nike and Apple. She received a degree in Sociology from University of California at Berkeley. Stephanie Mei-Ling is a 2019 Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice in the Americas grantee and her work will focus on racism in the maternal health care system in the U.S.
