DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY: #wocbeauty ft. Hien Hua

This photo series is dedicated to highlighting women of color as the main characters of my themes. Oftentimes, the beauty we see in front of the lens do not truly reflect the diversity we see in the real world. This project is meant to introduce and normalize new meanings of what it means to be captured on camera as a woman. And how do you normalize beauty of women of color? You bring in new situations, new themes for them to showcase their beauty.

Each theme varies – some tell a story or while others provoke you to think critically. The rest are left for you to simply appreciate visually. Many thanks to my female friends of color. #wocbeauty

The Space Within ft. Hien Hua

For this project, I wanted to focus on the concept of spatiality and stress its importance in our daily lives. We all have that one space that we can call our own so that within that one space, we are free to do whatever we please. The bedroom – more specifically, the corner where our bed lies – is an example of a space that we claim for ourselves during times when we need to unravel and rest. I hope that you feel a tinge of nostalgia as you browse through this collection of photos.
