My photographs are about my grandmother and her life as an immigrant from North Korea. She always told us about how restricted her life was as a 14 year old living in North Korea and how she needed to make herself feel small and hidden so she wouldn’t be arrested at the whims of the government.
Although she only lived in Korea for 14 years, she had certain traits embedded in her (such as being quiet, and not having an individual identity.) I wanted to show those traits but also reflect the difference between her life here and when she was young.
