William Yang: Stories of love and death

Grehan, H.ORCID: 0000-0002-9257-5615 and Scheer, E. (2016) William Yang: Stories of love and death. NewSouth Publishing, Coogee, N.S.W..


Acclaimed photographer William Yang has captured the zeitgeist like no-one else, providing a very personal insight into the evolution of Mardi Gras, the spectre of AIDS, Sydney’s theatrical and social scenes, and changing notions of ‘belonging’ in multicultural Australia.

In this groundbreaking book, featuring 100 images from William Yang’s personal archive, Helena Grehan and Edward Scheer explore Yang’s self-portraiture across photography, performance and documentary. William Yang: Stories of love and death considers the ways in which Yang’s constantly evolving art captures the enduring power of family, friendship and connection.
