Parallel Lives

April 12 – June 30, 2024

Opening reception: April 12, 6–9pm

The motherland holds a deep place in the psyche of many Asian Americans. Dual identities are often the source of struggle, but also inspiration – a desire to connect with one’s roots, culture, and family. A return to the motherland can offer insights and answers about yourself and your personal connection to that place. It can be life-altering in unexpected ways. Land to Sea asked photographers: in a parallel universe, what would your lives look like if we were still living in Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Korea, and Pakistan, juxtaposed with the lives you currently have in America? Follow each photographer’s journey back to their respective motherlands and what they learned about themselves during that journey.
