Our Roots

‘Our Roots’ is a photo series that explores the complexities of the Asian-American identity, and acknowledges the beauty of growing up within this vast and varied intersection. Collectively, the series illustrates what lies between the dichotomy of Asian and American: a spectrum of identities that was founded on Asian traditions and values, yet was molded and shaped by the larger American influence. The subject of each image is a familiar and beloved food item from our childhoods that is rooted in Asian food culture or history paired with an elaborate floral arrangement. The styling of the photos pull from a variety of influences in art and design culture that suggests a direct parallel to the blending of cultures required by American life. Our Roots commemorates the Asian-American journey to self-discovery and the enrichment of our identities. It embraces the many facets of Asian-American life and the paradoxical yet beautiful nature of our dual identities.
