Hello – and welcome!

My name is Emily Ung – I am a photographer, poet and designer based in Sydney, Australia; currently undertaking a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication and Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation at the University of Technology Sydney.

This site is dedicated to my photography, poetry, projects and musings – for me to document and share my growing repertoire of analogue film photographs and literary pieces, as well as my design work and passion projects.

I am passionate about conceptual design that is meaningful and evocative; design that will spark connection and affect change. I possess a sensitivity for materiality and detail, and my perfectionism is both a blessing and a curse.

I have always been awed by the way poets string together the simplest of words to convey complexity, and I aspire to capture the ephemeral and universal through my words and images. Above all, I hope my work connects and resonates with you at some level – where I could possibly put into words the thoughts you are unable to articulate.

You can follow me on Instagram @emilyyyung to see more of my work – or if you would like to get in touch to enquire about my photography or design services, please feel free to fill in the contact form below, or email me at hello@emilyung.co.


With love, Emily
