In 2020 she graduated with a first-class honors degree in photography from the Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT), winning many awards with her graduation project Red Illuminates, which has been exhibited and published with many photography institutions throughout Ireland, Europe, the UK, and Canada.
Long holds an ME in Electronic Engineering and previously worked as an engineer before turning her interest to photography. These experiences influenced her view on understanding the world. She sees the world logic and abstract simultaneously, which formed the base of her visual practice. Long is currently working on a commission for Dublin City Council around the theme of diversity, challenging stereotyped views of the Chinese community in Ireland, and named in The Irish Times’ 50 people to watch in 2021: The best young talent in Ireland.
