As biracial, multicultural individuals, we were so thrilled to be invited by Ms. Jasmine Love of Westridge School in Pasadena to help with a photography project for the “The People of Flavor Conference.”
Our project was quite simple. We took a headshot of each participant and turned the picture into their nametag. The goal was to have each person list the cultures they identify with and claim under their picture.
It was a wonderful experience. Too often we take people for simply what see them to be. To have a picture with a disclaimer of sorts told us that what is truth is not all that meets the eye.
These were our practice shots of ourselves, with our cultures under them:
As our work on the project progresses, we will update the blog with our work. Thank you to all the participants for their patience and their smiling faces.
