Publisher's Description
In modern, spare and elegant portraiture, artist Cindy Hwang (CYJO) highlights the diversity, identity, and immigration of the global kyopo, those of Korean descent that reside outside of the Korean Peninsula. CYJO decontextualizes her subjects to emphasize a sense of forced unity, allowing their spectrum of experience to contradict the apparent sameness of identity. Juxtaposed are the graduate student, the novelist, the activist, the architect. Through photographs and profiles, KYOPO challenges the idea of a monolithic, “authentic” Korean identity while stimulating exploration and a renewed perception of what it means to be both Korean and a citizen of the world.
