Brothers and Sisters, from a series of works called "Untethered; Stories from the Fillmore.  The Fillmore/Western Addition neighbourhood of San Francisco has a history of displacement of cultures. Specifically, Japanese Americans who were moved from the area during WWII and placed in internment camps, and African Americans who moved into the area (1950-1970's) and were also displaced due to Urban Renewal and Red lining policies. This project visual intersected both of these experiences on one picture plane by using images of both African Americans and Japanese Americans that occupied the same space at different. The inspiration for this work was that their stories have always been told individually, but I wanted to tell the shared legacy and heritage of their diaspora.
