Over the years, my work with immigrant communities and refugees dove into the nuances of home and identity in flux. Unsurprisingly perhaps, these themes have long marked my own journey of displacement and loss. When the opportunity came to participate in a pop-up group exhibition aptly named "Between Here and Home", I decided it was time to unveil new work that resulted from recent attempts to dig deeper into my personal experience. And so, I'm pleased to present never before seen images from my recent travels along the Silk Road in China, along with an installation of diaristic 16mm and Super 8mm films from NYC. Please stop by, otherwise I hope we'll get a chance to connect another way in person.

What does it mean to be Chinese in the contemporary moment of technological transformation as well as dangerous nationalist imagery? In Between Here and Home, seven photographers — one Chinese, three American-born-Chinese, one who emigrated to Queens from China as a young child, a Taiwanese Canadian, and a Filipina who has worked in Hong Kong — share their perspectives on various aspects of Chinese life and culture, both in China and in the diaspora, including New York City’s Chinatowns. They document traditional communities facing tremendous change, personal journeys of discovery, and political conflict.
