Born in Taiwan and based in Los Angeles, award-winning photographer/director Yu Tsai approaches his work with a uniquely global eye, taking inspiration from his studies and extensive travels to Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. While initially pursuing zoological sciences, Tsai followed the anomalous path of scientist-turned-Disney dancer-turned-designer, before finding his true calling in photography. Tsai's considerable body of work has appeared in V, Esquire, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, and Interview, where he has photographed celebrities such as Ziyi Zhang, Kristen Stewart, Lea Michele, Janet Jackson, Sienna Miller, James Franco, Iman, and Zoe Saldana.
