My name is Jin Zan and I am a photographer, illustrator and encyclopedian. I contribute on Wikimedia Commons for the cause of history and art. I photograph a variety of things, i.e. the city where I live in; Malmo, to contribute with its history, and various things found in nature and at home. The pictures that I create are often in the subject languages and writing systems.
I have been into photography since 2006 and it has also been part of my media education in secondary school. Among the works were e.g. photographing (mostly outside), photographic processing, as well as picture editing. Furthermore, I, together with other students, have also held a photography exhibition in a museum (a minor one), something that is not very common.
As part of my interests, I speak a couple of languages. Beside my mother tongues English and Swedish, I speak intermediate Latin, simple Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Tagalog, and little ancient and modern Greek and Chinese (mandarin). I also speak little fictional languages, i.e. quenya, sindarin and Ancient.
I've been a member on Wikimedia Commons since the summer of 2012.
