I've spent my life between worlds. I am originally from Hong Kong, a daughter of China by blood, born and raised in an island outpost forever caught between the East and the West. As a photographer I have always been instinctively drawn to the transient realm between worlds. My first major series of photographs featured performers shedding their ordinary personas backstage as they got into character for roles in traditional Chinese opera presented in modern Hong Kong. Over the years I've photographed jazz musicians schooled in an original American art form. I photograph artists who interpret all walks of life, I photograph ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. Most of all, I have continued to explore the interconnectedness of people who have crossed a cultural divide.
