Categories: Photo project

The photographer, under the pseudonym Sijo, calls herself a Western Korean (she was born in South Korea, but grew up in the USA), and the girl worked on her photo project "Mixed Blood" in New York and Beijing. In it, she explores the dynamics of the relationship between individual and collective personality. People move and change their lifestyle, and gradually the definition of personality evolves to adapt to the definition of race and ethnicity. In your photo project Sijo wanted to capture the ever-changing definition of "race" and explore the uniqueness of individuals in the context of their family.
