This unfinished self-portrait series reveals my desire to regain my lost Korean heritage. These portraits of "another me" interact with various aspects of Korean culture serving as what I have lost growing up outside of my birth country after being adopted.
I document my subject in a bare studio setting to emphasize her as a part of my imagination. Like early Asian photography, I capture the lifestyle of my subject to educate my audience and self of this different culture and people that I grew up never knowing.
