Video
Wish You Weren't Here - Winner of the BARON PRIZE 2020
A video work as a byproduct of what I have created as a photographer. It is a collection, and a recollection of the outside responses (from the viewers, the internet) to my photographic work, and to myself as my persona (online).

experience

Studied at the International Center of Photography-Bard College, and graduated with an MFA in photography from the Pratt Institute, New York, I have been working as a lens-based artist and a photographer in New York. My work explores how images intervene with our reality and create connections among people and space, investigating how we care for each other through photographs. I have been the recipient of the BARON Prize 2020 with my video work “wish you were not here”, short-listed for Palm* Photo Prize and the winner of the Capture Writing Prize 2021. My self-published newspaper “Family Album” will be exhibited in the Inaugural Photography Triennial at the Museum of City of New York in March, 2023.

Interested in doing more to help people care for each other, I started exploring UX design. I hold a Google UX Design Professional Certificate.
