New York Film Academy Photography alumnus Ping Wang‘s fine art project, “The Nostalgia of the Infinite,” is a bold combination of high-end fashion and metaphysical art, or as Wang eloquently puts it: “my exploration and self meditation about time and memory.”
His fashion editorials inspired by “The Nostalgia of the Infinite,” named “Untramelled,” have been published on L’Officiel India, and the fashion story inspired by the same fine art project named “Delusional” has been published on Factice Magazine.
“I’ve loved writing since I was very young,” said Wang. “I always take photos with my cellphone and put them into my personal blog. I believe this is the starting point for my photography. However, I didn’t know how to use a professional camera when I came to NYFA. NYFA values the practical and basic learning; it gives students a lot of time to think and then achieve.”
With Wang focusing on fashion photography since his graduation, he says he notices two trends in the space.
1. More “motions” are catching the spotlight in the industry. Fashion film has been a big trend.
2. Fashion photography is cyclical. I’m beginning to see some retro elements and a preference for film lighting.

“In everything that I do, I want to express myself and feel the world,” says Wang.
