Tell Me Who You Are Pt I is the first installment of a long project exploring Asian American female identity. This series circulates around my maternal grandmother's story. Growing up, my grandmother has always been a headstrong, fiercely independent force. However, as time has gone on, I've had to negotiate these images of my grandmother with images perpetuating damaging stereotypes of East Asian women. With this project, I've combined images, events, and excerpts from history that occurred before or during the time my grandmother was around my age (1940's and 1950's) because, despite her complexity, her history is interwoven with the history of events that came before her - and her history is my history. It's my mother's history, my aunt's history, and my own now. 2016.
