My photographs explore aspects of identity in relation to concepts of loss, isolation, and displacement. They also chronicle my own construction of identity, beginning with my search for “home.” I look for objects and scenes that objectify my feelings of irrelevance in environments that are supposed to function as my home.
My experience as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Taiwan has been influential in my exploration of identity and my decision to return to Taiwan to continue my work. I am particularly interested in aspects of identity and familial relationships in Asian and Asian-American cultures.
I am currently based in Pittsburgh, PA.
