A Day in the Life of Asian Pacific America

All Day

A Day in the Life of Asian American Pacific America seeks to capture the particulars of everyday life and piece them together to compose the ultimate wide shot. By looking at life from multiple angles, curated from the visual documentation of amateur photographers and videographers as well as professional documentarians and photojournalists, we can reveal the bigger picture

Through this online exhibit hosted by the Smithsonian APA Center at apa.si.edu, we celebrate our common joys, empathize with our sorrows, and appreciate all that we mean to each other. APA Smithsonian is asking thousands of people to take photographs and shoot video about Asian Pacific American life on May 10, 2014. This date was chosen because it falls on the 145th anniversary of the Golden Spike ceremony that marked the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad.
