"My ongoing collaborative project "Love Song" is a collaborative documentary photo series of my family with photojournalist Dustin Chambers. A trinity of personal spaces of my past becomes an archive and impetus for my writing and performative readings, taking the viewer through an emotional wrestling between my immigrant family and the American South, singing a love song for irreconcilability."
