“Yellow-Washing,” 2017

"Yellow-washing" is a photo series that aims to normalize the idea of the Asian American/Pacific Islander film protagonist by depicting stills from imaginary Hollywood movies. It's a love letter to the film genres that inspire me along with the multitude of AAPI characters who have the potential to inspire others.

Representation is important and beautiful. Our stories are important and beautiful. 

Prints of the project were exhibited at the 2017 The East Coast Asian American Student Union convention in Raleigh, North Carolina.
