Noise and Nuance

Hello – and welcome!

My name is Emily Ung – I am a photographer, poet and designer based in Sydney, Australia; currently undertaking a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication and Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation at the University of Technology Sydney.

This site is dedicated to my photography, poetry, projects and musings – for me to document and share my growing repertoire of analogue film photographs and literary pieces, as well as my design work and passion projects.

I am passionate about conceptual design that is meaningful and evocative; design that will spark connection and affect change. I possess a sensitivity for materiality and detail, and my perfectionism is both a blessing and a curse.

I have always been awed by the way poets string together the simplest of words to convey complexity, and I aspire to capture the ephemeral and universal through my words and images. Above all, I hope my work connects and resonates with you at some level – where I could possibly put into words the thoughts you are unable to articulate.

You can follow me on Instagram @emilyyyung to see more of my work – or if you would like to get in touch to enquire about my photography or design services, please feel free to fill in the contact form below, or email me at


With love, Emily
