Citizens OF NOWHERE

 

"Citizens of Nowhere" examines the intersectionality of race, ethnicity and nationality, and highlights the diverse experiences faced by the growing number of individuals who don't fit neatly into a single minority group. Society continues to classify and portray minorities as one-dimensional, homogenous groups—"black" and "brown" and "Asian"—but the reality is so much more nuanced, and these nuances are vastly underrepresented. With this series, I hope to give a platform to the voices and stories of individuals who struggle to fit within these model minority groups. If we are to represent minority groups, how can we do so in a way that is truly inclusive and honest? How do these "messy" stories fit? These are the questions I hope to shed light on through this series of portraits and interviews.
