APAHM: 腊八蒜

For those that may not know: May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAH) (as well as National Mental Health Awareness month).

For the past few months I’ve been slowly planning, thinking, and working on a project for APAH! I’ve been really wrestling with what it looks like for me to be working as an Asian American in the US, as an Asian American creative professional (and conveniently one of the few AA’s in the UMBC Photography Dept.) and just what that means for me and what it means for those that will come after me.

I present to you all:

A study and a celebration of Asian American lives in the context of different fields and practices. Explorations of identity as AA’s and how our personal identities came to be in a time when Asian American faces are not commonly seen in the limelight.

Series 1 coming out this Friday, 05.04.
