Title: In-Out-Sider


Date: December 2018

Included in the exhibition

Camera USA 2019, FL

As a Chinese photographer, I realize that I’m an outsider of Chinatown community.


My photo project in-Out-Sider investigates on detachment and immersion of Chinese culture transformed overseas. The photos represent many social aspects of three Chinatowns from east to west, and reflect on how the people inside or outside of this unique community respond to the transformation of Chinese culture.


My investigation turns out that it’s not simply an in or out, yes or no question, but a series of complex, repeated in-between conflicts of identity and belongingness.
