In America

Growing up in a Qing dynasty courtyard in Beijing, and having lived in the United States for the past 28 years, my series In AmericaSpring, Summer, Fall, and Winter is a personal project that investigates Asian-American identity through self-portraiture.

My search for an emotional home and a sense of belonging has taken me on a rich, spiritual journey. It allowed me to grow as a person as well as an artist. Through this photo project, I developed a deeper sense of appreciation for the hometown where I grew up, as well as for the new home where I feel roots beneath my feet.
