Reconnecting With Family History

This image explores my process of reconnecting with my culture and family history as a third-generation Korean-American in LA. I wanted to capture the story of my extended family, from my maternal grandmother's immigration in 1964 to the present, through objects found in my grandmother's house. Through this image, I seek to examine the themes of assimilation, cultural evolution, and the American Dream as well as explore my perspective as a Korean-American.
