“Sisters” Photography by Adrianna Newell
Sisters is an exploration of the complex relationships that are shared with each other. It is an evaluation of childhood, and present day shared experiences. It creates an intimacy between the subjects and the viewers through the use of interviews, the composition of the environment they are placed in, and created audio photos.

“Anxiety in Paths of Hope: Perception to Vision”
Photography by Chumin Wu, Zongwei Shen, Jingyun Chen, Mike Gan, & Taohen Zhao
This group of photos was taken by five photographers who were born in China and came to US seeking for better education and opportunities. Being in a new environment and culture, all the mixed feelings of inquisition, depression, anxiety, and confusion have entangled us often. As photographers, we decided to use photo as the medium to express our emotion and memories. We developed different techniques and angles, shown in the photographs of cities, which have been developed out of our similar cultural backgrounds yet different perspectives from our experiences. This collaborative exhibition embraces street photography, landscape, fine art photography, documentary, astrophotography, and architectural photography. We want to share our expression of the complex emotional experiences through our lens. It is often overwhelmingly scary, lonely, and it takes up a lot of courage to find our path towards our roles and goals. Through this show, we hope we can evoke people’s awareness on how non-natives live through their everyday life in this new land.
