6 imagesPhotographing the poetry of life on the streets of New York City
19 imagesWork-in-progress (2014-current). This project is an introspective, photographic meditation on the creation of the contemporary female identity as a mother. Using personal experience as a point of departure, I use staged photography to make images that express the nuanced and complex experience of motherhood, rejecting historical clichés and common platitudes.
4 imagesThese photographs were taken while I was pregnant with my first child. I wanted to suspend time during a period of rapid physiological and psychological changes; to capture the sensation of knowing that change was inevitable and imminent, yet invisible at a minute day-to-day level. The images in this series are meant to evoke a particular psychological resonance while refusing to provide detailed specificity or literal clarity.
11 imagesI wanted to explore the weekend fashions of young Chinese living in Beijing in 2007, the year before China's imminent coming-of-age party, the 2008 Beijing Olympics. I felt that this was a very specific moment in time for the Chinese - a period of transition after which there would be no going back.
