Yong Loh ‘Uprooted’

Los Angeles/Bangkok photographer Yong Loh brings us ‘Uprooted’, a visual poem about Western colonialism in Asia & it addresses the problematic expectations placed on Asian women.

“I set up a makeshift studio using pieces of fabric in my living room & shot this project with a 35mm camera. I wanted every aspect of this shoot to be intentional. Through casting, I chose models with different Asian backgrounds & picked specific colours to be the most prominent in the shoot, as red, yellow, blue/green are the most common colours in Asian flags.”
