Aline Smithson had a conversation with Anh-Thuy Nguyen about her projects for The States Project: Oklahoma. Read the interview at http://lenscratch.com/2018/10/the-states-project-oklahoma/
Anh-Thuy Nguyen is a multi-media/transdisciplinary artist, whose work spans from photography, video to installation, and performance art. Using her personal history as a resource, Anh-Thuy's work delves deeply into conflicting emotions, feelings, and thoughts through the portrayal of often strikingly strange yet hauntingly beautiful visual manifestations of gain and loss. She received a BFA in Photography from The University of Arizona and a MFA in Photography/Video from Southern Methodist University. Anh-Thuy has exhibited, gave lectures, and taught photography, painting, performance art, professional development, and concept-driven workshops nationally and internationally. After 5 years teaching at Rogers State University, Oklahoma, she recently relocates to Tucson, AZ, where she is the head of the photography program at Pima Community College.
