Dora Duan is a fine art photographer, who focuses on narrative portrait and abstract landscape. She grew up in China, and now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.


Duan started her career in California as a software engineer, however her passion for photography traces back to her childhood, which lead her to start a photography studio in 2012. Duan is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Art degree at Academy of Art University, San Francisco. 


With fertile mind and inspirations, Duan’s fine art photography emphasizes the emotional content within her heart and creates photographs that share her personal experience on a psychological level. Her work evokes emotional connections with her viewers by using minimal visual elements, aesthetic aspects, and dramatic lighting.


Dora Duan welcomes commissions. It is such a pleasure to work with private individuals, art collectors and business corporates to have a unique piece of artwork.
