Portraits record, memorialize, and elevate the individuals they represent. They have the power to act as portals to reveal hidden truths or operate as mirrors for self-reflection. They are proof of presence, immortalizing the stories of those represented. In Inheritance I’m working from images of the women in my family and positioning them as protagonists within our collective narrative. By weaving our stories with elements from Korean tradition and Classical myth, I’m sharing my hybrid perspective as a woman of color and immigrant.
