about Kiliii

Kiliii Yuyan, a photographer of Hèzhé (East Asian Indigenous) and Chinese descent, creates photographic stories for National Geographic and other major publications. His projects in the Arctic, and with Indigenous cultures have required wilderness survival, coldwater diving, and a penchant for listening. Kiliii has survived a stalking polar bear, eaten mangoes from the stomach of a fruit bat, and found kinship at the edges of the world. In 2023, Kiliii received the National Geographic Eliza Scidmore Award for Outstanding Storytelling and was named one of PDN‘s 30 top photographers in 2019. His work appears in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Amon Carter Museum, and has been honored by numerous photographic awards. He educates and inspires with speaking events around the world.
