is a photographer specializing in capturing public spaces, street
scenes, architectural sites, and environmental portraiture. Originally
from Paris, France, he moved to New York City in 2013. His series
‘Chinatown’ portrays the neighborhood with an off-beat approach from the
typical bustling ‘cliche’ to a silent and absent direction.
I’d like to take a moment to introduce my latest project called “The Model Minority Reality.” This photo essay portrays working class Asian Americans struggling to make ends meet in New York. Asian Americans are often stereotyped to be the “model minority” because they are viewed as successful, wealthy, and highly educated. But this is not true for millions of Asian Americans working in various low paying service jobs, such as cooks, waiters, nail salon workers, street vendors, grocery store clerks, and more.
