Culture Through Lenses, 2019
My interest in photography has led me to explore alternative photographic processes. One of those processes is cyanotype. Culture Through Lenses exhibit, which is a documentary portrait series of seven different cultures living in Silicon Valley: African-American, European-American, Filipino-American, Indian-American, Latino-American, Persian-American, and Vietnamese-American. I believe my visual arts can brings people together and will be embraced by the communities in which the collective stories from different cultures. We inherited many cultures from our respective homeland and from the direct experience of the elders in our community. I want our young people to never forget who they are and where they come from.
